This is a very impressive fossil dinosaur footprint made by theropod dinosaur in the early Jurassic similar to/ or what very well could be Podokesaurus holyokensis. This fossil tells a story! Just imagine a theropod in the early Jurassic period walking through an ancient lake shore! Well, that’s precisely what this rare fossil is!
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.
