More "giant human" early Cretaceous tracks

The second EK "giant human" track site (cca 100 mya). The giant should have been about 230 cm tall, or more likely, these were the bottom feeding traces left by a large fish. For a difference from the other site, this one has more dispersed traces.

My recent find

This quite large footprint belonged to an early Cretaceous theropod that reached the size of T.rex. The largest theropod I have found on this mega track site measured about 130 cm in length!

Bad news

A few fossil tracks in Pula were recently destroyed. One giant natural cast of an iguanodontoid footprint got buried under a huge pile of pebbles. It happened during the unusually strong Yugo storm. Maybe it reappears again some day. Some other tracks were buried with it.
Another giant iguanodontoid track (a natural cast) was destroyed by some construction works at the coast. I am hoping that the rock containing the fossil is still somewhere at the site and not completely devastated (image before it was removed).
