Big hug from,

In 1924,the geologist Luciano Jacques de Moraes, who worked in the former Inspectorate for Works Against Drought, heard the stories about footprints in the rock on the banks of the Fish River in Sousa, the municipality of Paraíba.Then he decided to know the footprints. As soon as he saw them, he realized that it was not beef, emu or werewolf, and using an old camera "lick-lick", took several photos and sent them to a research laboratory in England.

The answer was surprising: the tracks are from dinosaurs of the Cretaceous period (110 million years ago), in perfect condition. From then on began the journey of American scientists to the site. They even cut two samples of tracks - one in 1924 and another in 1930. Led to more research and did not return (according to wikipedia), a sample was to the United States and one to France.Wikipedia

Hola Ana,

Olá Ana!!!!
Uma foto excelente para documentar esta ocasião! ... Bom trabalho ... como Nat Geo! ... E você olhar bem, unha pintadas preto! :)
Eu amo este tipo de trabalho que combina várias fotos! ...
Cumprimentos e obrigado por compartilhar e ensinar!

Ciao Ana, beautiful collage of interesting photo with very old footprints, splendid colors and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello aNa,
Yes, I see the dinosaurs had black fingernails :) But jokes aside, this is a wonderful piece of information that I will certainly follow up on. Brazil and South Africa were joined together at the time and soon afterwards separated. There are similar footprints here in South Africa. And fertilised fossilised dinosaur eggs with the little ones inside. Thank you for a wonderful contribution. Best wishes.

PS: Talking about palaeontologists (I am not one but thoroughly enjoyed the science at university), next week I will be addressing with some students a topic which I call "The Lystrosaurus Enigma" argueing that Lystrosaurus was not, after all, our very ancient ancestor. And, if I survive for long enough, the palaeontologists will kill me :)

Hola Ana.
Muy muy interesante fotografia la que hoy nos presentas aqui. 110 millones de años despues ahi esta la querida Ana justo en el lugar donde vivian estos especimenes.
Debe ser una grata impresion poder poner tu mano justo ahi.
Saludos Ana.
Interesante, muy interesante foto.

Bonjour Ana,
Bien vu l'exposition de ces quatre petites photos d'empreintes.

Hy Ana
Not so often we have the privilege to see such footprints. I am amazed that being exposed to different environments are still very well preserved. Nice collage and a good idea to include your hand for comparison.

Kind regards,

Hi Ana,
Beautiful and interesting image, fine texture and colors, well captured. tfs.

Buen documento sin duda Ana y desde luego de difícil catalogación... yo la pondría
en aves ya que ponían huevos los dinosaurios no ? heheeh.
Interesante ese viaje tuyo... al próximo te acompaño.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi.

Bonjour Ana,
Une bonne idée de nous montrer ces traces de dinosaures et d'en faire un collage. En Suisse aussi il existe plusieurs sites où l'on peut voir des traces assez longues des ces créatures immenses. Cela nous rammène à un passé vraiment très très lointain!
Meilleures pensées

Hello aNa,
This is fantastic to have been there, seen it and touched it. It is fascinating and thank you for sharing it with us. I don't really care where you up loaded it but the fact that you shared this with us is more important to me. I find your notes most interesting. Well done my friend.

Bonjour aNa,
Très belle et intéressante évocation remarquablement documentée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Ana,
I remember as a young boy how interested I was in dinosaurs. I can only imagine how thrilling it must have been to actually see these footprints, and be able to touch them with your hands. Thank you for sharing you photos.

Hi Ana,

very good interesting note, thanks.

I am a little jalous.
