Described as a treasure by the Polish Geological Institute of the National Research Institute, the relics and fossilized bones were found in an open clay mine in Borkowice, 130 kilometers south of Warsaw.
“In the tracks left by dinosaurs, you can read their behavior and habits … We have traces left by dinosaurs running, swimming, resting and sitting,” said geologist Grzegorz Niedzwiedzki.
The largest footprints of carnivorous dinosaurs reached a length of 40 cm. In many cases, the skin can be seen in detail.
“For this state of conservation to be possible, a very special series of events must occur in a short period of time,” geologist Grzegorz Pienkowski said in a statement.
Several hundred dinosaur footprints have been found, representing at least seven species, and geologists say they will likely find many more. They also found bone fragments from animals and fish.
