A thread for stories about dinosaurs. There was one today (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/8294425.stm).

French fossil hunters have discovered huge dinosaur footprints, said to be among the biggest in the world.

The footprints were made about 150 million years ago by sauropods - long-necked herbivores - in chalky sediment in the Jura plateau of eastern France.

The depressions are about 1.5m (4.9ft) wide, corresponding to animals that were more than 25m long and weighed about 30 tonnes.
