Tyrannosaurus Rex 'Footprint' Is Found

T-Rex FootprintA Britain-based palaeontologist believes he has found the world's first known Tyrannosaurus rex footprint.

Phil Manning said he has high hopes the one square metre (about 11 square feet) print, from the famed Hell Creek area of the northwest US state of Montana, is from the flesh-eating giant, although 100 percent certainty is impossible.

Manning, whose work still needs to be peer-reviewed, suggested the 67-million-year-old print "could only" be one of the two species previously found in Hell Creek, Nanotyrannus or its bigger relative Tyrannosaurus rex.

"The size of the footprint at 76 centimetres (30 inches) in length suggests it is more likely to be the latter," said the academic, from the University of Manchester, northwest England.
