It’s a trek that they’ll never forget.
A hiker walking in hills near Barcelona, northeastern Spain, stumbled upon a fossilized footprint believed to belong to a reptile-like ancestor of the dinosaurs. The extinct creature, called Isochirotherium, roamed the Earth during the Middle Triassic period some 230 million years ago.
It’s the “best preserved print ever found in the Iberian Peninsula,” reports the Spanish news agency EFE.
Olesa de Montserrat town council made a plaster cast of the print, according to the local newspaper La Vanguardia. The regional Department of Culture’s archaeology and paleontology service is examining the fossilized print.
Eudald Mujal, a paleontologist at Barcelona’s Autonomous University, said it was “exceptionally well preserved” and even “retains details of claw and skin.”
He told The Local that the now Isochirotherium was part of the archosaur group of animals. They were “similar to crocodiles, of quadrupedal gait, but with longer limbs,” and a more erect posture Mujal, said.

Translated from regional broadcaster RTV Noord-Holland in the Netherlands today:
SCHIPHOL airport – An inspector from the Dutch Food Safety Authority (NVWA) last weekend at Schiphol discovered a box containing 60 leopard tortoises. The animals were put in tiny boxes and could not move.
The tortoises were 47 centimeters long, while their compartments only had a length of 45 centimeters. Therefore they could not move their heads and feet, NVWA reports.
The animals were en route from Uganda to Hong Kong. The owner could not show valid CITES documents, which regulate the global trade in protected species. The turtles were therefore expropriated and taken to a shelter. The owner received an official report for animal cruelty.
