Japan Experts Discover: World’s Largest Giant Dinosaur Footprint In Mongolia Desert :- On Friday, the researchers unearthed one of the biggest dinosaur footprints ever recorded in the Gobi Desert, Mongolian, offering a fresh clue about the giant creatures that roamed the earth millions of years ago.

A joint Japanese – Mongolian expedition found the giant footprint, which measures 106 centimetres (42 inches) long and 77 centimetres wide.

The researchers said that one of several footprints discovered in the vast Mongolian desert, the huge fossil was discovered last month in a geologic layer formed between 70 million and 90 million years ago.

It was naturally cast, as sand flowed into dents that had been left by the creature stomping on the once muddy ground.

According to the researchers, the footprint is believed to have belonged to Titanosaur, a long-necked dinosaur and could have been more than 30 meters long and 20 meters tall.

A statement issued by Okamaya University of Science that this is a very rare discovery as it is a well-preserved fossil footprint that is more than a meter long with imprints of its claws.

The Japanese university has been involved in the study with the Mongolian Academy of Science.
