Sauropod dinosaur footprints on the outskirts of the town of Torotoro. The footprints are very well preserved in sandstone rock.
Detail of two sauropod dinosaur footprints. Being quadrupedal, this dinosaur left four impressions, corresponding to two hands and two feet. In the photo, the left footprint corresponds to one hand (front leg), and the right to one foot (rear leg). When walking, the quadrupedal dinosaur first laid down the hand and then the foot, whose footprint partly overlapped with the footprint left by the hand.
