Dinosaur Tracks Found In Southwest Arkansas
Lions and tigers and… Dinosaurs? In Arkansas?
Yes, that’s right!
Researchers at the University of Arkansas say they’ve discovered a large field of dinosaur tracks.
The field covers an area the size of about two football fields, and contains tracks that have never been found in Arkansas before.
Researchers think the tracks may belong to the “Acrocanthosaurus atokensis,” one of the largest predators.
According to Brian Platt, one of the researchers, “Dinosaur bones can be dragged away by animals or swept out to sea. But we know that about 120 million years ago, dinosaurs walked right through here.”
