The scottish island was a paradise of dinosaurs
Discovered the stegosauri "scottish". In the island of Skye, the wonderful land of medieval castles and picturesque villages in the north-west coast of Scotland, have just been found by a group of paleontologists dozens of dinosaur footprints, among which, unexpectedly, to those of some stegosauri. So far it was not note the presence of the Stegosaurus in this area today, scottish, already known for the presence of traces of other dinosaurs, and that in fact, 170 million years ago, it was a subtropical zone, warm and humid, in the Atlantic.

fascinated with dinosaurs, famous for their double row of plates the shape of a rhombus that run along the entire back and up on the tail, according to the experts, lived in Skye during the period of the Middle Jurassic. Paleontologists Stephen Brusatte and Paige dePolo of the University of Edinburgh are co-authors of a study published on Plus One that shows a large presence of different species of dinosaurs in the area of Skye, and in which support precisely to have found unmistakable traces of the presence of stegosauri.
The island of the dinosaurs: in Scotland the footsteps of 170 million years ago
Thanks to some footprints clear enough, to be found along a line that includes footsteps both on the left side than on the right, being the four-legged animal, paleontologists have failed to establish that "it is stegosauri". The prints found were just a little bigger than a fruit like a grapefruit, because although these specimens were able to attain nine metres in length and weigh several tons, the fossil tracks identified to Skye tell of the presence of dinosaurs young and of small size.
