Largest dinosaur foot print ever discovered!

RMDRC’s curator, Anthony Maltese, in conjunction with Emanuel Tschopp, Femke Holwerda, and Dave Burnham published a paper on July 24, 2018: The real Bigfoot: a pes from Wyoming, USA is the largest sauropod pes ever reported and the northern-most occurrence of brachiosaurids in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation.

The foot was first excavated in 1998 by an expedition team from the University of Kansas which included Anthony Maltese. This image shows the brachiosaur foot bones below a tail of a Camarasaurus, with a University of Kansas expedition crew member as a scale.
