Giant Dinosaur Footprints Found On The Roof Of A Cave

IFLS: Heads up! Scientists have discovered the prehistoric footprints of a colossal dinosaur on the roof of a cave in France. Nope, this doesn’t mean that giant dinosaurs were dancing on the ceilings of caves like a sticky-footed Spiderman, although it goes to show the wealth of prehistoric discoveries that could be found lurking in the geology all around us.

Recently reported in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, researchers from the University of Burgundy–Franche-Comté discovered the three dinosaur trackways during an expedition in 2015 around the labyrinth-like Castelbouc Cave beneath the Causse Méjean plateau in southern France.

The tracks, made some 166 million to 168 million years ago, are extremely well-preserved, complete with impressions of digits, pads, and even claws. At a stonking 1.25 meters (4 feet) long, the prints belonged to some of the largest known dinosaurs worldwide.

It’s not certain what species of sauropod was responsible for the tracks, not least because they date to an age in the Middle Jurassic when sauropod evolution is hazy. However, their size suggests they might have belonged to a titanosaur, a diverse group of long-necked sauropods that includes the largest land animals known to have ever existed, such as the 37-meter-long (121-foot) Patagotitan that roamed southern Argentina. 

So, how did these gentle giants’ footprints end up on the cave roof? more

  1. Maybe it happened the same way that the Colorado River supposedly carved out the entire Grand Canyon, even though it leaves the canyon at a higher point than it enters.

  2. ‘Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
    Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
    He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.
    His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
    He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.’

    Job 15-19 King James

    Job knew exactly the animal God was talking about.

  3. Grool go drool your BS somewhere else. Yeah we all believe the Earth is 6000 years old and Adam and Eve are the beginning of man. Oh the humanity! Sad, but typical.

    Such a kind and pleasantly-worded response. Deeply moving, although perhaps not the way you’d intended.

    All during grade school I was being taught that the channeled scablands were carved out the same way. I’m looking at them and saying: No way says I.

    I did a little research on my own and they were formed during the ice ages by Brett’s flood.

  6. “Grool go drool your BS somewhere else. Yeah we all believe the Earth is 6000 years old and Adam and Eve are the beginning of man. Oh the humanity! Sad, but typical.”

    You sound upset.

  7. “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” –

    It needed a call for help. And it never came…what a way to go?

    Was it one of those short leg fellas or one of those longer legged ones?? With the short little arms?

  8. It tripped over the night stand in a drunken vegan gorging stooper…and then got crushed by an earthquake that night, and died from a toe that got gangrene.

    Very sad.

    I take it in your opinion that you don’t believe that the Bible is true? I’m ok with that, for the Bible is itself pro choice. However, many here have experienced that the God of that Bible is real by the facts of what we have seen and heard.
    I don’t think the world itself is 6000 years old. But hey that’s not a heaven and hell issue. We could all debate that but it’s a waste of time that’s not going to change minds. What is very important is that you find out yourself before you die.
    You base your opinion on your experience of not having seen what we have clearly seen. So your non experience does not trump what we have seen with our own eyes. Believe what you will. But every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. I say this that you would know that at that point there will be no negotiation and you won’t be talking your way out of hell. Eternity is forever, make the right choice and live, that is why we are here, that we might choose life.

  10. There were giants in those days of Noah, and after Noah. When Moses took the slaves out of Egypt, the scouts came back out of fear as giants were in their path. Goliath was a giant.

    If there were giant animals, why not giant people?

    The Nephilim

    The earliest mention in giants in the Bible is just prior to the Flood account.

    “There were giants [nephilim] on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown “(Genesis 6:4).9

  11. Nephilim and their offspring were the gods the Greek worshipped. Titans of old. People thought they were myths. Goliath was an offspring of them.

    And, btw the above quote “He moveth his tail like a cedar:” is also interpreted as . . . tail the length of a cedar.

    Great response Toenex

  12. Probably like the White House ceiling after 8 years of fashion-armpit michelle obama trampling around.
