The traces of the dinosaur are very well preserved in the south of England on the beach. After returning to the Cretaceous, the prints show skin, scales and claws.
The paleontologist at Cambridge University has revealed at least about 7 species of dinosaur around 85 East Sussex beach in Hastings, England. Today, a collection of fossil remains of the United Kingdom discovered in the United Kingdom is "a present," according to a statement.
The recordings are about 60 cm (60 cm) in size, about three inches (2 cm) inland. The researchers have been directed by a PhD student from the Department of Earth Sciences of Anthony Shillito in Cambridge to identify some of the dinosaurs responsible for making engravings. Iguanodon, one Ankylosaurus, stegosaurus species, and identified sauropods (long neck, four-legged grasshoppers). The level of detail of these recordings is truly outstanding.
The discovery of these remains has been possible thanks to the erosion of the coast. In the last four winters, the strongest storms and storm rhythms have hit the coast, causing rocky cliffs and sandstone.
Stratigraphic layers return to Cretaceous times, 145 million to 100 million years ago. The details of this study were published this week in the science journal Palaeogeography, Palaeolimathology, Palaeoecology.
This southern England region includes the production of fossil dinosaurs, including the first example of brain tissue found in 2016. In the last century, however, this area has given a strange footprint to Dino and definitely has nothing on that scale.
The traces of dinosaurs are of great value to scientists, which can not be fossilized by bodies, such as soft tissue, behavior, and sense of animals and plants at the same time.
The area surrounding dinosaur vehicles is likely to be near the water source, according to scientists. The site also has fossilized and invertebrate plants.
"To keep track of, you need the right kind of environment," said research co-author Neil Davies in a statement. The "sticky" of the land must be sufficient, this mark leaves a mark, but it is not so cleansed. You have to balance it to catch them and protect them. "
Shillitus adds: "Because of the abundance and diversity of these recordings, we also see incredible detail, you can clearly see the texture of the skin and scale, and very rare from the four toes claws. Dinosaurs can get some idea of footprints, other fossils compared to those that are familiar with the dinosaur's feet to detect significant similarities. When you look at other remnants from other places, the key players of the species were to start together. "
The paleontologists of Cambridge transformed these dinosaurs into river flow. Today, large mammals, such as hippos and cows, create small well-known channels for diversifying the flow of the river. Dinosaurs can produce similar processes with incredible size.
Scientists have found evidence of the era, but they have found new footprints, such as deep traces, growing bushes of plants and engraving on river banks. But more research will be needed to divert the dinosaurs to water channels.
This can be the culmination of palaeontological exploration in the particular evolution. Erosion has been so bad throughout East Sussex's beach, as civil servants build marine defense defenses to stop or prevent coastal erosion. As a result, more traces behind ancient beings will be hidden in rocks, at least so far.[Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology]
