This piece of news gives rise to an interesting question:
How did footprints in water get preserved? Wouldnt such vulnerable impressions get washed out quickly if made in a shallow river? Wouldnt dinosaur tracks like this be ubiquitous around the world, in shallow rivers over millions of years? There should have been numerous rivers in the paths of numerous dinosaurs like this.
And what were these dinosaurs running from?
Mr Romilio says the 95-98 million-year-old tracks are preserved in thin beds of siltstone and sandstone deposited in a shallow river when the area was part of a vast, forested floodplain.
Sorry, but declarative sentences like this should make intelligent people giggle. There is no way any one could possibly know this factual.

They were running from the dinosaur Chickasaurus Leghornamus. Some of them were trapped in oil when a nearby volcano erupted and became the first deep fried chicken.
