Enormous Dinosaur Footprints Discovered in Texas Riverbed Dried by Drought

Previously submerged dinosaur footprints have been uncovered in Texas in the wake of drought-driven drying of a river.

The Paluxy River, which flows through Dinosaur Valley State Park in Texas, has shrunk due to the intense drought conditions gripping the state and others in the U.S. southwest, revealing previously unseen dinosaur footprints beneath the waterline.

Dinosaur Valley State Park, around 60 miles southwest from Fort Worth, is home to a variety of dinosaur prints, mostly from ancient sauropods and theropods. This is the first time that the riverbed tracks have been seen. A video posted by Dinosaur Valley State Park on social media shows the newly uncovered footprints, appearing as deep grooves in the muddy riverbed measuring several human hands across.

    I went there a couple of times while stationed at Carswell AFB. It's pretty neat. Found lots of large fossils embedded in extremely large boulders along the Lake Benbrook dam as well.

    How very interesting. It would be amazing to find such preserved footprints. Imagine, walking where dinosaurs prowled. Cheers, RickO
