There are three very nice dinosaur footprints present on this slab with deep impressions (largest footprint being the more shallow impression). Footprints have been highlighted for east viewing but can be easily washed away.
Footprints in the Connecticut river valley were originally 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.
