A Large Pterosaur Footprint Fossil Discovered in Korea May Be the World's Largest
A gigantic pterosaur fossil footprint has been discovered in Gunwi, North Gyeongsang Province and it could soon be labeled as the world's largest pterosaur footprint ever to be found.
The Natural Heritage Center says while out on a field study its researchers found the flying reptile's footprint measuring 15 millimeters longer and 63 millimeters wider than what's currently recorded as the world's largest pterosaur footprint.
The fossilized footprint is estimated to be between 90 and 100 million years old.
The center plans to present this finding at the 69th Annual Meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology taking place later this month in Bristol, England.
