Protoceratops "found dead on its tracks"

    A Protoceratops skeleton has been found associated with a footprint for the very first time; although this dinosaur was extremely common at the time, its footprints had never been found.
    The track found with the skeleton matches a Protoceratops' foot perfectly, but although the press is saying that the animal "died on its tracks", this may not be the case. The track is in an odd position so it probably wasn´t even left by this particular Protoceratops. It is possible that the animal simply collapsed besides a track left there earlier by a member of its own species. Who knows...
