Description

THIS  FOSSILS DINOSAUR  FOOT PRINT IS THE FIRST OF IT’S KIND COLLECTED IN THIS LOCATION IN SCOTLAND.. JUST RECENTLY IN  2017  GEOLOGISTS HAVE BEEN STUDYING THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN DINOSAUR FOOT PRINTS  FROM THE LOCATIONS IN MASS. AND CT. TO THE SAME DINOSAUR FOOTPRINTS TO THAT OF  FAR NORTH EAST  ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN IN  WHAT  IS CALLED SCOTLAND . JUST A LITTLE OF HISTORY IN THE LATE 1800s THERE ONLY BRIEF MENTIONING  OF TWO LOCALITIES  ALONG  THE EDGE OF LOC NESS IN SCOTLAND NEAR  DRUNNADROCHIT
NEAR  URQUHART CASTLE AND  ONE OTHER LOCALITY  MENTIONED BRIEFLY ALONG  THE COAST  OF TAIN IN WHAT IS KNOWN  AS SHANDWICK BAY. (  LOOK AT A  MAP OF SCOTLAND  ) IN THE SUMMER  OF 2017  GEOLOGIST BRETTON  CARTER  OF MASSACHUSETTS  CONDUCTED A STUDY ON BEHALF  OF MULTITUDE  UNIVERSITIES UNIVERSITY   OF GLASGOW  AND  HARVARD  TO SAMPLE   ROCKS  DISCOVERED IN BOTH  REGIONS  3000 MILES SEPARATE BOTH AREAS, COMPARE TO EACH OTHER  THE CONNECTICUT  RIVER BASIN  AND THE SURPRISE TO  ALL   THAT  BOTH THE FOSSILS WERE IDENTICAL BUT THE LAYERS  OF SANDSTONE ,SCHIST  AND MUDSTONES MAKING UP THE MATRIX OF BOTH AREAS  WERE IDENTICAL .
THAT  MEANS  THAT THE CONNECTICUT RIVER BASIN  NOT ONLY EXTEND FURTHER  INTO CANADA ,BUT ALSO TO WHAT IS NOW  MODERN DAY SCOTLAND  MEANING  THIS EVENT IS EVEN MORE  CONCRETE EVIDENCE THAT SOME 200 MILLION YEARS AGO THAT THESE GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS WERE MUCH MORE CLOSELY CONNECTED . IN OTHER WORDS  CONTINENTAL DRIFT IS THE REAL THING AND CONTINUES TODAY !!!

This raptor-like dinosaur probably stood about 4 to 10 feet tall. Natural fossil is approximately 200 million years old. Beautiful  brick red sandstone, from Mass

Note: Grallator ( means similar to the tracks of the Grallae  or heron – stork family )

This is a very nice dinosaur trace fossil. Dinosaur tracks have been chosen as the State Fossils of Massachusetts. ( concave footprints ) sought by many collectors and it wonderfully exhibits the three-toed nature of the dinosaur’s foot and some footprints are crossing over each other that would indicate that two different animals walked in the same area. The tracks have been slightly darkened for contrast and is extremely well showcased on the plate of matrix.  This is a striking example of a collectible dinosaur tracks that would display well on a shelf or in a display case and  quite rare as we don’t get many  tracks  like this one.

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 !!!!

 

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 concave  footprints ( see diagram above to see how footprints are made and fossilized).

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 !!!!!!!!
