ABSTRACT Fossil footprints provide the only evidence of Triassic-aged dinosaurs in Australia. While historically several Triassic dinosaur tracksites are reported, only one specimen exists for direct study. Evidence for the Rhondda colliery (Ipswich) trackmaker, Upper Triassic Blackstone Formation as a very large-bodied Triassic predatory dinosaur is not supported by the present study because of overestimated footprint length measurements, and we question earlier interpretations that these… 

Pedal Skeletal Proportions of Bipedal and Potentially Bipedal Dinosaurs and Other Archosaurs: Interpreting the Makers of Early Mesozoic Footprints

Abstract Dinosaur footprints often occur in Late Triassic–Early Jurassic continental sedimentary rocks. While many such tracks can readily be associated with the kinds of dinosaurs that made them,

Softening the steps to gigantism in sauropod dinosaurs through the evolution of a pedal pad

This work uses finite element analyses to quantify the biomechanical effects of foot skeletal postures with and without the presence of a soft tissue pad in sauropodomorphs, and finds that none of the models can maintain bone stresses that fall within optimal bone safety factors in the absence of a hard tissue pad.

ABSTRACT The Callide Basin Lower Jurassic units had been noted two decades ago as having preserved dinosaur ichnites, however, none had been shown or described at that time. The current study is the

A diverse Late Cretaceous vertebrate tracksite from the Winton Formation of Queensland, Australia

The Snake Creek Tracksite reconciles the sauropod-, crocodyliform-, turtle-, and lungfish-dominated body fossil record of the ‘upper’ Winton Formation with its heretofore ornithopod- and theropod-dominated ichnofossil record.

The Dinosaurian Ichnofauna of the Lower Cretaceous (Valanginian-Barremian) Broome Sandstone of the Walmadany Area (James Price Point), Dampier Peninsula, Western Australia

Trackway evidence for large bipedal crocodylomorphs from the Cretaceous of Korea

This interpretation helps solve previous confusion over interpretation of enigmatic tracks of bipeds from younger (? Albian) Haman Formation sites by showing they are not pterosaurian as previously inferred, and support the strong consensus that pterosaurs were obligate quadrupeds, not bipeds.
