"Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should." Dozens of well-preserved dinosaur footprints from at least 100 million years ago have been uncovered in East Sussex, England. It's said they range from about to an inch to nearly 24 inches in width across, and are so well-preserved that even the skin, scales and claws can be seen.

At least seven different species were identified by University of Cambridge researchers during the past four winters following coastal erosion along the cliffs near Hastings. Bone and fish fossils have been more common in this area but the footprints are the first to have been discovered in 25 years. More info and pictures HERE.
