Woman Collecting Shellfish Discovers Dinosaur Footprint of ‘Jurassic Giant’
A woman collecting shellfish was astonished to discover the largest dinosaur footprint ever found on the Yorkshire coast—likely belonging to a ‘Jurassic giant’ megalosaurus.
29-year-old Marie Woods was foraging for her dinner on Saturday when she stumbled upon an enormous footprint, believed to be around 165 million years old.
Experts have now documented the find, and say it’s the most significant discovery in the area since 2006.
Marie, who’s an archaeologist, said: “All I wanted to do was grab some shellfish for my dinner and I ended up stumbling across this. I showed some palaeontologist friends what I had found and none of them had seen it. It’s really exciting.”
