Over 85 well-preserved footprints from six different species have been discovered in South East Sussex in England.

Traces of the dinosaur
Traces date from the Low Cretaceous period, 145 to 100 million years ago. The traces of dinosaurs come from the following dinosaurs:
- Including herbals Iguanodon;
- Ankylosaurusstegosaur species;
- Possible examples of the Sauropod team (including Diplodocus and brontosaurus); and
- Teropods for meat-eating.
Anthony Shillito, PhD student at the Faculty of Earth Sciences of Cambridge, and the first author of paper, said: "The whole body of dinosaur fossils are rare. Usually, you will only get small pieces, which will not tell you a lot. The same dinosaurs live in the same place. "
How do dinosaurs cause the flow of rivers?
Shillito is also investigating the impact of river fluids on dinosaurs. Today, large animals, such as hippopotamuses or cows, can create small paths to divert river flow.
Shillitus explained: "Due to the large size of many dinosaurs, it is very likely to roam the rivers in a similar way, but it's hard to find gun burning because most of the remains were cleared. However, their impact assessment scale We see smaller ones: you can see scrubland growing plants in deep traces. Traces of river channels have also been found, so it is possible that dinosaurs create a channel for them. "
Are there any more traces?
More dinosaur footprints are likely to be found on eastern rocky cliffs in Eastern Sussex. However, it may be said that marine protections in the area are hidden within rock.
