Giant dinosaur footprints found in France
Published on October 7th, 2009 | by Admin0
The footprints were made about 150 million years ago by sauropods – long-necked herbivores – in chalky sediment in the Jura plateau of eastern France.
The depressions are about 1.5m (4.9ft) wide, corresponding to animals that were more than 25m long and weighed about 30 tonnes.
French experts say the find at Plagne, near Switzerland, is “exceptional”.
