Near the sprawl of a major highway, an amateur paleontologist found what he says are the first footprints ever uncovered of a 6-foot-long (2-meter-long) plant-eating dinosaur that roamed the Earth about 100 million years ago.

Umm Wrong! Everyone knows the world was made ~6,000 years ago.

Dinosaur footprints next to a highway?

Vindication for creationists! Proof that man and dinosaurs walked together! Nay, dinosaurs walked alongside CARS!

And exactly HOW does a footprint eat plants?

The dinosaur that produced the Maryland tracks has been named Hypsiloichnus (pronounced HIP-sillo-IK-nus) marylandicus, meaning "trace of a Hypsilophodon from Maryland."

Am I mean if I find that hilarious?

If only that dinosaur had obeyed the word of God, or maybe been a bit smaller and accommodatable in the ark, it wouldn't have been wiped out in the life-expunging flood God socked on Noah.

Well I guess there were stupider creatures than Red Sox fans in Maryland.

2005-01-10 05:13:04 AM
Sorry, those are mine. See, I was up in Boston after the Sox won that Series thing, and I kinda got a little angry. Seems I too, turn into a creature of notable girth when the Yanks loose. Thankfully, this is not often.

At least I didn't crush the Motorhome.

Marylander Nitpick: It's not the Baltimore Aquarium. It's the National Aquarium in Baltimore. It's recognized by Congress as one of the National Aquariums (it blows the one in DC out of the water....um, so to speak).

I'm sure dead dinosaurs contributed somewhat to oil but I believe most of it is from plants and marine invertebrates.

This estimate is off by about 100 million years.

You mean traffic now moves on 95?

The National Aquarium in Baltimore rocks. I've been to every aquarium in the Tampa area, and despite the fact that Tampa is cleaner, easier to develope, and has 50x the wildlife Maryland has, nothing can compete with a federally funded facility.

I'm just sad the dolphins didn't start massacring each other until I moved away.

And about the dino tracks, I'd be wary. Maryland has an indigenous species known as the alley crab. Homeless, the alley crab may have anywhere between 0 and 4 apendages and a very long scraggly beard. Diet consists of garbage and 1-6 liters of liquor a day. Can usually be seen passed out in the alley mumbling incoherently, but sometimes wanders railroad tracks or underneath elevated highways. Alley crabs tend to migrate to downtown Baltimore during baseball and football events. I'd be willing to bet these are the tracks that have been discovered.

Maryland rocks. Sometimes the rocks have tracks in them.

I know at least one other person in this thread took Tom Holtz's dinosaur class at UMCP. I wonder if he stopped by the dig.

I saw the dolphin show at the Aquarium New Years day. Frigin awesome. If dolphins ever got organized they would ruin our shiat.

Maybe the dino was on his way to the Fark party this weekend.

My Snoopy Cyclopedia says that the first dinosaur bones were uncovered in CT just 170 years ago.

Is that true?

Claude Damage: I took that class, it rocked! (no pun intended.) I doubt I'm the person you're thinking of, though. I'm also interested in knowing where this site is, as it wouldn't be very fun for me to check the whole I-95 corridor.

I googled this guy's name a couple days ago, and I found an article that talked aobut how he had founded a cult (or something similar) before he went into the dino biz.

I meant to go back and read the article, but now I can't find it :-/

Anyone out there have mad google skilz?

Not so obvious. It could have been the tracks of a Willidon Schaeffericus, or a Lefticus Drisellius.
