This is a very impressive fossil dinosaur footprints made by theropod dinosaurs in the early Jurassic similar to/ or what very well could be Podokesaurus holyokensis.
This is a fossil trackway made be a handful of different individuals, which is very uncommon. This specimen is museum quality and very special.
The original footprints were discovered, amongst others, by a farm boy, Pliny Moody. E.B. Hitchcock, a clergyman, described the Grallator footprints and others as evidence of ancient birds. Ever since that initial discovery, the Connecticut River Valley has routinely been the site of a plethora of scientific discoveries dating back to the Late Triassic & Early Jurassic periods.
