Raised Fossil Dinosaur Footprints from Uniquely Colored Sedimentary Rock
Age: 205-200 Million Years Old (Early Jurassic)
Location: Connecticut River Valley, CT
Species: Unknown Theropod
Slab Size: 9”x 5” x 1”
Largest Footprint Size: 4”x 3“
Recently and legally collected in private property along the Connecticut River Valley near Middletown, CT. This is the fossil impressions multiple Theropods (raptor) that existed some 200 Million Years Ago. The species that made these tracks is relatively unknown to science, but it can be said safely that this track was made by carnivorous theropods. These are raised impressions, which are created when sediment fills in an existing footprint and hardens into a separate layer of sedimentary rock within it, thus creating one solid rock with multiple layers of tracks from somewhat different times (made months apart likely). This specimen is comes from an extremely colorful layer of sedimentary rock
This specimen has not been polished and is in its natural state.
