REHBURG-LOCCUM, GERMANY (WTXF) – - A group of archaeologists in Germany made the discovery of a lifetime after finding a trail of rare dinosaur footprints.
The footprints date back to around 145 million years ago and are 40 centimeters deep.
The dinosaur that left the footprints weighed up to 30 tons.
According to German scientists, the footprints belonged to a Sauropod, which belongs to a group of dinosaurs with long necks and tails.
An investigation of the trail is ongoing.
Experts hope that it can answer questions about conditions in the Cretaceous period, the mysterious era which ended 65 million years ago with the mass extinction of dinosaurs.
