Social Media Comments Unearth Sceptics
"Strange that we have a drought in 2022 and the dinosaurs come back, walking around leaving prints and no one sees one..." Christopher Bennick
"Christopher Bennick wow… astonishing…. It’s impossible that fossilized tracks were left, millions of years ago. But you said it, not me.
A less sarcastic answer: in this particular case these prints were originally discovered in 1908 after a rock layer that was covering the prints broke loose during a flood. Since then, there have been several excavations revealing more prints. Since then, the River has been eroding the prints." Justin Peachee
