Kamenjak ornithopod

There is an upper layer on the Grakalovac (Kamenjak #1) site, that has preserved tracks, too. I wonder why nobody has checked it out, yet. Just at a superficial glance I have spotted a nice, very small ornithopod footprint - in fact a natural cast, just about 12 cm long. I took a better look and there were a couple of poorly preserved tracks that formed a small trackway of apparently slowly walking dinosaur. See my photograph and interpretation outlines.

Whether this trackway was left by a juvenile or adult animal, nobody can tell. There are also some poorly preserved theropod tracks on that rock layer near by.
