Triassic Amphibian TrackwayDescription: This track was made by an unknown amphibian in the Late Triassic Holy Cross Mountain deposits of Poland. It was most likely made over a short timespan while the substrate was just the proper moistness to preserve it. The Holy Cross Mountains are well known for preservation of tracks from early tetrapods in the Early Devopnian almost 400 million years ago as well as those from members of the Dinosauromorpha some 250 million years ago in the early Triassic. This specimen comes from the Late Triassic and is a right forelimb cast made by an animal some 2-2.5 meters in length who would have shared the terrain with the dinosaurs. I always enjoy seeing specimens such as this as they show a moment frozen in time when we can actually see what the trackmakers were doing.
