This is a very nice dinosaur trace fossil. Dinosaur tracks have been chosen as the State Fossils of Massachusetts. sought by many collectors and it wonderfully exhibits the three-toed nature of the dinosaur’s foot . The track has 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 are quite rare as we don’t get many tracks like this plate.

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. Coelophysis is the name of the dinosaur attributed to the name of the track.

These tracks have been well-developed claw impressions on two of the toes. These tracks has been highlighted., The tracks are Concave footprints ( see diagram above to see how footprints are made and fossilized). The name of the of the Dinosaur Footprint is Grallator and name of Dinosaur is Coelophysis .

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 !!!!!!!!
