The great dinosaur stampede that never was?

3 posts in this topic

It's billed as the world's only known example of a dinosaur stampede - but new research is challenging the established version of events at Lark Quarry, in the Australian outback, almost 100 million years ago.

Rewind the clocks 95 million years, and imagine the scene.

There are other elements that could cause a stampede ... how about wildfire? The varied footprint depths could be explained as flying dinosaurs getting a running start so as to take off. And, the fire would have hardened the mud much as a kiln and preserved the footprints.
