Grallator is an ichnogenus (form taxon based on footprints)( and is thought to be the Coelophysis Dinosaur or Raptor like ) which covers a common type of small, three-toed print made by a variety of bipedal theropod dinosaurs. Grallator-type footprints have been found in formations dating from the Late Triassic through to the early Cretaceous periods. They are found in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and China, but are most abundant on the east coast of North America. The name of the footprint is not the name of the Dinosaur, but was probably COELOPHYSIS Dinosaur !!!! ( Read details about Coelophysis )
Grallator tracks were made by a theropod (carnivorous) dinosaur such as Coelophysis. These tracks have been well-developed claw impressions on two of the toes. This track has been highlighted., The tracks are convex footprints ( see diagram above to see how footprints are made and fossilized). These are the a Cast of the original Footprint, and as you can see there were many individuals at that time.
Also you see a picture that shows you Turkey Tracks in the snow that I photographed 3 winters ago , does it look amazing that the dinosaur tracks look similar to the turkey or a dead ringer for the turkey tracks there’s only 200 million years separating them !!!!!!!!
