MULTIPLE DINOSAUR TRACKWAYS
Anchisauripus sillimani, Graliator cursorius
Lower Jurassic, Hentangian Stage
This large gray stone matrix contains the footprint tracks of three Anchisauripus, an under-examined genus described as a lion-sized prosauropod that roamed across North America at the beginning of the Jurassic Period. It is an ichnogenus, meaning that it has been identified only from trace fossils, such as these footprints. Also present on the plaque is a set of smaller prints from the mysterious Graliator and the whole piece measures 22 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches presented in a fabric-lined wooden frame 26 1/2 x 31 3/4 inches.
