Rare 170-Million-Year-Old Dinosaur Tracks Discovered In Scotland

The footprints of meat-eating dinosaurs with three toes dating back 170 million years have been found on the coast of Scotland.

Sky News reports that the gigantic 170-million-year-old dinosaur tracks were recently discovered at Brother’s Point on the Isle of Skye.

Around 50 footprints were found by a group of international researchers that say the footprints are rare evidence of the Middle Jurassic period. The team used drones, 3D pictures and software.




The technology allowed scientists to see the outline of toes and claws. They believe the footprints belonged to long-necked sauropods and theropods, dinosaurs related to the Brontosaurus and Tyrannosaurus rex.
