Dinosaur footprint Mount Morgan A1Your model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Dinosaur footprint (A1.2) from the ceiling of the ‘fireclay caverns’ of Mount Morgan, Queensland, Australia in lake deposits ~195 million years old of Early Jurassic (Sinemurian) and is preserved as a track infill (i.e., an ‘outie’ rather than an ‘innie’).
The model was made based on photogrammeteric methods of a plaster replica made from a wax mould by the late ‘Ross’ Staines in 1954 when working as a geologist at Mount Morgan.
Not so much a ‘lost’ specimen because it was not known to science, this important specimen resolves decades old misconceptions of dinosaur track-maker identity and behaviour from this tracksite that has been permanently closed since 2011.
