Once again the recent stuff


There is a huge theropod footprint there (not visible from this angle).


The tourists have no idea this was an ancient forest (thrombolites) 100 mya.


Osage oranges anyone?


The spoiled sunset.

The emerald sea.

The hunt for the tracks was very succesful!



 From the mega track site the other day: a medium-sized theropod footprint that faded away through the process of dessication.


 A "micro" theropod footprint.


A small theropod trackway - indicates it was running fast!

Some recent finds

A "classic" EK polacanthidae anky footprint - natural cast (2015). Probably webbed feet. A world record length of cca 72-75 cm. Imagine the size of this armored animal!


The brightness of the Cretaceous rocks in contrast to the shades of blue and green of the Adriatic sea.
 Looks like a baby "Iggy" footprint (2015). Marked red.
A large theropod (a "dromie"?) footprint lost in the sauropod dinoturbation.

Some random photographs

The Main Brijun island (Veli Brijun) in teh Summer of 2015, theropod tracks from the Early Cretaceous (Barremian) site on the Pogledalo promontory. The tracks in the picture belong to two different trackways. Right foot on the left and left foot on the right.

My recent find

 My recent problematic find. At first I thought it was a theropod footprint. On a second glance it seemed ornithopod. Now I am thinking - ankylosaur. If so, they were really abundant along the ancient coast.


Yes, it fits the shape of a large Polacanthid left pes impression.

My first iguanodontoid track

This is the  first giant iguanodontoid track I have initially found in 2010. This is in fact a dinoturbation with several footprints more or less well defined. (2012)
