UQ Dino Lab researcher Dr Anthony Romilio is part of an international team that have described diminutive dinosaur tracks from the mid-Cretaceous of South Korea.  The tracks were originally found by Professor Kyung Soo Kim from Chinju National University of Education, South Korea.

“These 110-million-year-old footprints and trackways were made by carnivorous dinosaurs commonly known as raptors,” Dr Romilio said.

“These new tracks are just one centimetre in length, which means the dinosaur that made them was an animal you could have easily held in your hand.

“They are the world’s smallest dinosaur tracks.”
