Recently the scientific team of the Museum of Dinosaurs and the Archaeological and Paleontological Collective of Salas (C.A.S.) have returned to the mega-site of Las Sereas, in the Lara area, to continue studying some footprints that are a mystery to this day. In Sections 7 and 8 there are a good number of sauropod dinosaur footprints with anatomical features that differ from what is known in the reservoir record of the rest of the planet. These deposits have been excavated and consolidated by the C.A.S. in previous years, and some articles have also been published in scientific journals.
The objective now is to deepen the study of these mysterious footprints, check if they constitute a new type of sauropod footprint and identify their possible author. For this they had the icnologists José Ignacio Díaz (National University of Río Negro, Argentina) and Diego Castanera (Miquel Crusafont Institute of Paleontology, Barcelona), who together with Pedro Huerta and Fidel Torcida worked in the fields to collect new data and discuss in situ the most important characteristics of the prints. The final article is expected to have been prepared and presented this year.
