Massive Titanosaur Footprints Found In Gobi Desert!


  • A joint Mongolian - Japanese expedition has recently discovered a giant footprint of titanosaur near Gobi desert, South Africa.
  • This giant footprint is 106 centimetres (42 inches) long and 77 centimetres wide.
  • The fossilised footprint was found last month underneath a geological layer formed between 70 million and 90 million years ago.
  • The footprint is believed to have belonged to titanosaur, a long-necked dinosaur, and could have been more than 30 meters long and 20 meters tall, according researchers.
  • The footprint cast is natural and it might have formed after the gigantic creature stomped once on the muddy ground and sand flowed into the dents.
  • "This is a very rare discovery as it's a well-preserved fossil footprint that is more than a meter long with imprints of its claws," said a statement issued by Okayama University of Science.
  • The Japanese university has been involved in the study with the Mongolian Academy of Science.
