World's biggest dinosaur footprints traced in Australia's Jurassic Park

World's biggest dinosaur footprints found in 'Australia's Jurassic Park' as As team of palaeontologists identified an unprecedented 21 different types of dinosaur tracks, including the only confirmed evidence for stegosaurs in Australia, on a 25-kilometre stretch of a remote coastline north of Broome. Lead author Dr Steve Salisbury said the diversity of the tracks around Walmadany (James Price Point) was globally unparalleled and made the area the “Cretaceous equivalent of the Serengeti”.There were five different types of predatory dinosaur tracks, at least six types of tracks from long-necked herbivorous sauropods, four types of tracks from two-legged herbivorous ornithopods, and six types of tracks from armoured dinosaurs. Most of Australia’s dinosaur fossils come from the eastern side of the continent, and are between 115 and 90 million years old. The tracks in Broome are considerably older,”
