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 this was made by a carnivorous theropod or Ornithischian. The track on the back is definitely a theropod, and identified as a raised juvenile Eubrontes.

These are two different footprints on both sides. One one hand, you have a true impression, and on the other side you have a raised impression. Raised impressions are created when new Sediments cover the original impressions and harden within them. On occasion when you split this Jurassic shale, you will get both the original negative impressions as well as these Raised casts. 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.
