Connecticut Dinosaur Notes

Exactly forty years ago the people of Connecticut were astounded by the discovery of fossilized dinosaur footprints at an excavation site in Rocky Hill. The prints are thought to have been made around 200 million years ago by a creature similar to the one pictured above. Interestingly, two days ago more such prints were found at another excavation not far from the original find. The Dinosaur State Park, in Rocky Hill, was established to preserve the orignal site and a museum was built to cover the area and provide additional exhibits.
