Record-Setting Dinosaur Footprint Found in Bolivia
The dinosaur, from the Abelisaurid family, would have left the track some 80 million years ago, said the local paleontologist who found it, Omar Medina.
He made the find in southeast Bolivia, a hotbed of dinosaur fossils.
"It's one of the largest prints ever found" in the South American country, he told AFP.
The paleontologist who verified the footprint, Sebastian Apestiguia, said other carnivorous dinosaurs of the period in South America usually only stood about 29.5 feet (9 meters) tall and that this new find would be record-setting, according to the Spanish news agency EFE.
Huge dinosaur prints measuring up to two meters across have also been found in France and Argentina.
