THIS  FOSSILS DINOSAUR  FOOTPRINT 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 FOOTPRINTS  FROM THE LOCATIONS IN MASS. AND CT. TO THE SAME DINOSAUR FOOTPRINTS TO THAT OF  FAR NORTHEAST  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  DRUMNADROCHITNEAR  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 UNITED KINGDOM  MEANING, THERE IS EVEN MORE  CONCRETE EVIDENCE THAT SOME 200 MILLION YEARS AGO THAT THESE AREAS WERE MUCH MORE CLOSELY CONNECTED. CONTINENTAL DRIFT IS  REAL  AND NOW WE HAVE THE  ROCKS THAT PROVE THIS EARLY THEORY AND THE DRIFT OF THE CONTINENTS. THE OLD WORLD( A COPY OF THIS REPORT IN WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THE PURCHASE OF THIS FOOTPRINT.) SPECIES: GRALLATOR  DINOSAUR FOOTPRINTS  #54AGE: 200 MILLION YEARS OLD( MAKES THIS TRACK  LATE TRIASSIC TO EARLY JURRASIC )LOCATION: TAIN, SCOTLAND ( 3000 MILES FROM NEW ENGLAND )SIZE OF MATRIX  9″ X 7″ X 2″SIZE  OF FOOTPRINT 3″  FROM THE MIDDLE TOE TO THE HEEL  AND 2 3/4″ FROM LEFT TOE TO THE RIGHT TOE.WEIGHT: 6 POUNDS PRICE: 125.00THERE ARE 3 .5 TRACKS THAT ARE ALL CONVEX  AND 1 LARGE TRACK  ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE MATRIX THAT IS CONCAVE AND THE SIZE OF THE FOOTPRINT IS 6″ X 5″ FROM THE LEFT TOE TO THE RIGHT TOE.

His raptor-like dinosaur probably stood about 4 to 10 feet tall. Natural fossil is approximately 200 million years old. LOCATION:: SCOTLAND 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. BUT THIS ONE IS FROM SCOTLAND( CONVEX ) 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 are extremely well showcased on the plate of the matrix.  This is a striking example of 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.

THE FACT THAT IT IS FROM SCOTLAND MAKES IT QUITE UNIQUE  YOU HAVE TO FLY THERE JUST TO GET A TRACK  FOR YOU  WELL WE HAVE DONE IT FOR YOU. 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, Scotland, 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 SEE ATTACHMENTS!!!! 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). Also, you see a picture that shows you Turkey Tracks in the snow that I photographed 5 winters ago, does it look amazing that the dinosaur tracks look similar to the turkey or a dead ringer for the turkey tracks there are only 200 million years separating them!
