Researchers have uncovered dinosaur tracks in rural Abruzzo, which reveal that Italy’s largest documented dinosaur once roamed the central region.
Researchers used techniques inspired by 1993 film Jurassic Park to analyse the prints, and believe they could be helpful in shedding new light on the habits and behaviour of the dinosaurs that once lived in Italy.
Some of the prints were left due to dinosaurs’ feet sinking into the muddy ground, while one is thought to have been left by a crouching animal. One footprint, 135cm in length, is the largest which has ever been found in Italy.
The prints are only reachable during the summer and autumn months.
