The massive footprint of a 'titanosaur' found in the Gobi Desert could be 90M years old


One of the biggest dinosaur footprints ever discovered was found in Mongolia's Gobi Desert.

'A very rare discovery'

The massive footprint was found by researchers from the Okayama University of Science and the Mongolian Academy of Science in August, and only recently revealed. 

"This is a very rare discovery, as it's a well-preserved fossil footprint that is more than a meter long with imprints of its claws," according to a statement from the university.

The naturally formed footprint is believed to be between 70 million and 90 million years old.

Scientists believe the footprint belonged to a class of dinosaurs called "titanosaurs."

As you can imagine, they were huge, up to 98 feet long.
