Science: Photos: Giant Sauropods Plodded Along in Scottish Lagoon

The giant footprints of long-necked sauropods were found on the rocky coast of the Isle of Skye in Scotland this past April. When the track marks were made about 170 million years ago, the dinosaurs were walking through a shallow saltwater lagoon, the researchers said. These Middle Jurassic prints suggest that the paleo-beasts didn’t just walk on dry land, as was previously thought, but were comfortable walking in shallow water, the researchers said.
