Dinosaurs walking along the lakeshore

Shallow lacustrine deposits from the Barremian Mirambel Formation (Teruel province, Spain) hold some dinosaur tracks which were recently discovered. Here a nice theropod footprint that is sinking the underlying laminated sediments. A first report of this dinosaur track record was presented in this conference paper:
