Nearly verticle dinosaur tracks


It’s kind of weird looking at dinosaur tracks from the Cretaceous period heading straight up and down a mountain!  But don’t worry. Those ancient reptiles didn’t have suction cups as feet – it’s just  that the 25,000 square meter rock face showcasing 5,000 tracks of 294 different dinosaurs was once a lake bed in modern day Bolivia that got heaved up almost vertically (73 degrees) when the Andes formed. But it does look funny, doesn’t it?
