The discovery of one of the largest ever dinosaur footprints could shed light on the behaviour of the prehistoric animals, researchers said.
Found in the Gobi desert and measuring 106cm long and 77cm wide, it is believed to be of a titanosaurus.
It was discovered in August in a geological layer formed 70 to 90 million years ago.
The print could help scientists understand the dinosaur's social behaviour and walking patterns.

Giant dinosaur footprint discovered in Mongolia desert

One of the biggest dinosaur footprints ever recorded has been unearthed in the Gobi Desert, researchers said Friday (Sep 30), offering a fresh clue about the giant creatures that roamed the earth millions of years ago.
A joint Mongolian-Japanese expedition found the giant print, which measures 106 centimetres long and 77 centimetres wide.

Jurassic footprints found on Skye

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh have discovered a trackway of more than 100 dinosaur footprints on the Isle of Skye.
The 170-million-year-old tracks were created by sauropods, some of the largest animals ever to have walked on Earth.

Mapping Australia's dinosaur landscape

Scientists are trying to reconstruct ancient Australian landscapes once roamed by some of the biggest dinosaurs to have ever walked the planet by surveying thousands of fossilised tracks in remote Western Australia.
Along a 100km-stretch of coast in Western Australia's Kimberley region, tens of thousands of dinosaur tracks are fossilised in sandstone.

New evidence dinosaurs were strong swimmers

A University of Alberta researcher has identified some of the strongest evidence ever found that dinosaurs could paddle long distances.
Working together with an international research team, U of A graduate student Scott Persons examined unusual claw marks left on a river bottom in China that is known to have been a major travel-way for dinosaurs.
Alongside easily identified fossilised footprints of many Cretaceous era animals including giant long neck dinosaur's researchers found a series of claw marks that Persons says indicates a coordinated, left-right, left-right progression.

Dinosaur Footprints at NASA Goddard Take Another Step

A grouping of 110 to 112 million-year-old dinosaur footprints pressed into mud from the Cretaceous Period have now been safely moved from their original setting on the grounds of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Until further scientific study is possible, the footprints, now wrapped in protective material, will be stored on the Goddard campus.

Title: The Smallest Known Tetrapod Footprints: Batrachichnus Salamandroides from the Carboniferous of Joggins, Nova Scotia, Canada
Authors: Matt Stimson, Spencer G. Lucas, and Gloria Melanson

A new specimen of Batrachichnus salamandroides from the classic Carboniferous section at Joggins, Nova Scotia, is the smallest set of tetrapod footprints known in the fossil record. The trackmaker was a juvenile, quadrupedal temnospondyl or microsaur with a trunk length of 3.55 mm and an estimated body length of 8 mm (skull, presacral vertebrae, and caudal vertebrae). The 48 mm-long trackway preserves a high degree of extramorphological variation along its course, including a gait change associated with a change in direction along with an increased stride and pace, and the appearance of overstepped imprints, in the latter portion of the trackway. These morphological changes suggest the tetrapod changed from a walking gait to a running gait.
