Double-Sided Dinosaur Footprints / Eubrontes / Early Jurassic
Age: 200 Million Years Old
Location: Connecticut River Valley, Connecticut
Species: Eubrontes (Possibly Dilophosaurus)
Recently and legally collected in private property along the Connecticut River Valley. This is the fossil impressions of a Theropod (raptor) that existed some 200 Million Years Ago. The species that made these tracks is relatively unknown to science, but it can be said safely that these tracks were made by at least two species when comparing the size and shape. I wonder where they were off to? The larger of the tracks is 8” from middle toe to heel. The smaller track may be a younger individual of the same species.
This is a Raised impression which are created when new Sediments cover the original impressions and harden within them. On occasion when you split this Jurassic shale, you will get both the original negative impressions as well as these Raised casts. This track has been lightly polished with a clear sealant to help pop them out. The sealant May be washed or peeled off so the fossil can revert to its original state. It has also been naturally hardened and River tumbled.
