Dinosaur Valley State Park saw new tracks as a drought unveiled age-old wonders.


A summer of drought has revealed long-submerged relics across the globe. Some bring us back decades, while others boast histories of thousands of years. A park in Texas now claims one of the oldest revealed this summer – dinosaur footprints dating back over 113 million years.


The Dinosaur Valley State Park near Fort Worth, Texas, famous for exactly what its name suggests, has discovered dinosaur footprints that have historically been covered by water and sediment.
Now that a summer of drought has left its Paluxy River shrinking, tracks from millions of years ago can be seen.

Davis said the tracks at this site are possibly the longest tracks made by a single dinosaur in North America. Davis said the tracks are from Acrocanthosaurus dinosaurs from millions of years ago.

However, as Texas begins to get some rain, Davis said it likely won't be long before the tracks become hidden again.
"It's just the nature of the river," Davis said.
