Moscow, Apr 10 (UNI) More than hundred fossilised dinosaur footprints, believed to be some 145 million years old have been discovered in Turkmenistan.
A whole 'field' of three-toed footprints, possibly made by plant-eating dinosaurs, was found at a height of 800 meters in the country's mountainous Gaurdak region. Each of the footprints is about 50 centimeters long.
Similar traces of plant-eating dinosaurs were also earlier discovered in the same region in Turkmenistan, as well as in nearby Tajikistan.
Earlier this week, Russian scientists in St Petersburg displayed a remarkably well-preserved 37,000-year-old frozen baby mammoth, known as Lyuba, as reported by Ria Novosti.
