Fossil reptile Footprint (Chirotherium)

Go to Nottingham City Museums

Around 1910 Professor Henry Hurd Swinnerton of Nottingham University found this fossil footprint in the Mapperley park area of Nottingham. In 1965, a skeleton of a new species of reptile called Pseudosuchians was found. Scientists now think it was one of these reptiles that made the footprint.
