Oldest Evidence for Dinosaurs in Tiny Footprints


Footprints found in 250-million-year-old rocks suggest dinosaurs evolved a few million years after Earth's most severe extinction event to date.


THE GIST
  • The oldest fossils of the dinosaur lineage have been found in 250-million-year-old rocks from Poland.
  • The fossils are footprints from dinosauromorphs, very close relatives of dinosaurs.
  • Dinosaurs may have evolved from these small animals, which lived right after Earth's most severe extinction event.
