As the Paluxy River retreated, it revealed the majestic footprints of dinosaurs that once roamed these lands.
With every grain of sand that were moved, the investigators were brought closer to the magnificent creatures that once ruled the Earth.
Eventually, they encountered footprints that bore testimony to the dinosaurs called Acrocanthosaurus and Sauroposeidon.
The Acrocanthosaurus was a formidable predator that lived around 110 to 115 million years ago.
Standing at 15 feet and weighing 7 tons, it was a bipedal giant with a distinctive spinal ridge.
The Sauroposeidon also roamed the ancient lands about 110 million years ago.
This herbivorous behemoth, stretching up to 100 feet and weighing around 44 tons, grazed on high vegetation, facilitated by its long neck.
The Sauroposeidon has been recognized as Texas’ official state dinosaur since 2009.
