ONE of the biggest dinosaur footprints ever found has been uncovered in the Mongolian desert.
The massive marking is believed to have been left behind by a Titanosaur, a species of dinosaur that trampled the earth approximately 70 to 90 million years ago.
The footprint, which is over a metre in length and 77cm wide, was discovered in the Gobi desert by a team of Japanese and Mongolian researchers.
It was naturally cast as sand flowed into dents that had been left by the creature stomping on the once muddy ground. The historic footprint is believed to be the work of a Titanosaur, a long-necked dinosaur that could have been more than 30m long and 20m tall, according to researchers.
Shinobu Ishigaki, a palaeontology professor at Okayama University, said the team is searching the area for dinosaur remains.
