Fossil Dinosaur Footprints with Skin Impressions + Fossil Plant Stem
Ships from Massachusetts!
Age: 200 Million Years Old
Location: Connecticut River Valley, Connecticut
Species: Unknown Theropods (Likely Podokesaurus)
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. While the tracks themselves are called Grallator Tracks, they were likely created by Podokesaurus Holyokensis. The reason why the tracks have a separate name is because the tracks were discovered before the first remains of Podokesaurus. Through the left toe is a remarkably preserved plant stem, which isn’t uncommon on its own, but uncommon in a footprint. The larger of the footprints also has some great quality skin impressions (circled in red).
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.
