Following in a dinosaur`s footsteps

Following in a dinosaur`s footsteps

Last year my dad took me and my son to a dinosaur footprint park in Portugal. It might not have looked like much from the outside, but once inside and once you spotted the little (from a distance) dents in the rocks you couldn't help be impressed. My son certainly was. Earlier this week in Bolivia they discovered some of the largest footprints of a meat-eating dinosaur ever found. I can't even begin to understand the excitement those who made the discovery must have felt.
