Large ornithopod footprints found in Mexico

Comments



  • Based on that picture, you'd imagine such obvious prints would have been stumbled across before... or did they have to clear off a bunch of rubble first?




  • On a second look on that picture. It looks sort of false. Maybe it is merely my own impression, but they look like someone made them.

    Sorry to be so cynical and I ask forgiveness if I am wrong, but the word "hoax" comes to mind.

    I don´t know... probably since you can see the rubble around in the pic.:confused:

    That's a rather lame hoax then, as there's nothing very special about dinosaur footprints in northern Mexico; they've been found by the thousands.

    Yes, that is true, I am not saying it IS a hoax, merely they look sort of manufactured in the photo. Almost as though someone put them into a new foundation for a wall or something. No offense was intended on the OP Adam. Just voicing my own personal opinion after looking at the picture. I accept that they are probably real, just that to me they don't LOOK real.

    Sorry. :o

    No probs, I'm not offended at all :> In fact, I have seen fossils that are real yet look kinda fake, like something one could create in his garage or something XD

    Then there are ones that kind of were made in someone's garage...

    Hmmm.... Piltdownasaurus?




  • National Geographic's biggest embarrasment thus far, it seems




  • That's what happens when you prioritize deadlines ahead of performing actual science.




  • They still do that. In one of their latest issues they made it look as if they had found Cleopatra's tomb (I think it was that) yet the article only said that a certain archaeologist believed the tomb was located in a certain place. No actual expedition, no actual proof, just a belief. WTF?
