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).
