Scientists have been alerted to a number of different dinosaur tracks in a Utah area known for recreational vehicle use.
A popular area for sporting citizens to play with off-road toys, many already knew about the three-toed tracks. The Bureau of Land Management did not. When it was informed the tracks existed, the Bureau closed off an area in Southern Utah about the size of a football field.
Among the tracks discovered were those belonging to a “sharp-toothed and clawed carnivore” and a three-toed crocodile. In all, thousands of tracks have been found that are 190 million years old. Utah is known as an area where Jurassic fossils and tracks can be found.
