'Exquisitely preserved' dinosaur skin trace

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An “exquisitely preserved” trace of dinosaur skin has been discovered in South Korea.

Researchers found a set of tiny tracks from a blackbird-sized Minisauripus, the smallest known theropod.

The footprints themselves, which measured only an inch long, also contained perfectly preserved skin traces.

“These are the first tracks ever found where perfect skin impressions cover the entire surface of every track,” professor emeritus of geology Martin Lockley, from the University of Colorado Denver, said.
