Very Rare Dinosaur Footprint & Ammonite Duo / Jurassic / United Kingdom
Age: 180 Million Years Old
Location: Bridport, Dorset, UK (The Jurassic Coast)
Dinosaur Species: Unknown Theropod
Ammonite Species: Asteroceras obtusum
180 Million Years Ago, an Ammonite species known as Asteroceras obtusum washed up on the prehistoric coast of what is now Bridport, UK. Shortly after washing ashore, it was buried in mixture of sand and clay, only to be stomped on by an unknown species of Theropod (raptor) dinosaur. The footprint dried and preserved right over the grave of the Ammonite underneath it. That is the story this fossil tells us of these moments of prehistory.
This is an incredibly rare fossil. Not many of these have ever been retrieved in Dorset, though they have been described infrequently. It was self-collected by yours-truly in January of 2019 as I was fossil hunting across the UK. The footprint has been polished with a clear sealant, and can wash off with a little elbow grease. The footprint is quite visible even without the highlight. This fossil comes with a document of Authenticity.
