A theropod or not
Another example of a dubious footprint from late Albian rocks of Pula. I have interpreted it as a tridactyl track. It's probably a theropod. But I am not sure. It may be an ornithopod and even a thyreophoran. There's a short trackway there on that rock that may be thyreophoran and I have attributed one footprint to an iguanodontoid. There's even a chance that all those tracks of relatively small size belonged to the same animal. Making a detailed sketch of the outcrop and taking some casts would probably resolve the dilemmas.
A small modern "theropod" was watching me taking the photographs.
