This is a very impressive trackway made by multiple individuals! The footprints are rather deep too! Recently and legally collected in private property along the Connecticut River Valley near Middletown, CT. This is the fossil impression of a Theropod (raptor) that existed some 210 Million Years Ago. The species that made these tracks is relatively unknown to science, but it can be said safely that these tracks were made by carnivorous theropods. These tracks were likely made by multiple individuals, indicating a possible traveling group, or a busy area.
This specimen has been lightly polished with a brown shoe polish to help pop it out. The polish can be washed of so the fossil can revert to its original state. The polish is semi-permanent if not washed, or exposed to outdoor elements for prolonged amount of time.
