Ms Porth had been collecting sea shells and walking around a big pile of rocks when she said she felt an"amazing sense of energy" coming from under her right foot.

I have always thought Dinosaurs were still around. There are so many places on earth that we just cannot get to and who knows what is still out there. This footprint might prove just that. Also I am very sure there are still dinosaurs in the ocean depths that we will never know about.

I look forward to them finding out what kind of dinosaurs they were. After some research I'm sure the paleontologists will give us an answer.

The indigenous community knew they were there for thousands of years but it's great Bindi noticed they had re-emerged because we weren't aware they could be seen again. The coast is a very dynamic environment. If you spend any time in that area you will see the beaches change dramatically.

Footprints of a Tyrannosaurus-type dinosaur have been found by a woman collecting shells on the most popular part of one of Australia's best-loved beaches.

If we really took the time and listened to the indigenous population around the world we would know so much about what is happening to the world. People in the modern world spend so much time trying to achieve knowledge that is already in the makeup of the original people. All we need to do is put down our electronics and learn from the people of the earth. There are probably dinosaurs roaming around all over the world.

Dinosaur tracks have been part of Aboriginal mythology, known as Dreamtime, in the area for generations."This particular spot, for instance, is known to have tracks on it and is called the Place of the Emu Man," Salisbury said, referring to the three-toed tracks similar to emu footprints.
Other footprints found include those of the stegosaurus and the enormous, herbivorous brontosaurus.

Paleontologist Steve Salisbury, a senior lecturer with the school of biological sciences at the University of Queensland, tells CNN that the footprints have been hidden under sand and surf and says that “the tracks were called Megalosaurus Broomensis and they were probably made by a medium-sized carnivore.”

These particular tracks belonged to a carnivorous theropod, bigger than a velociraptor but smaller than a Tyrannosaurus rex.

The area, is so heavily pockmarked with fossilised footprints that it’s become known as the dinosaur coast.

This is a very exciting development; having someone beachcombing to come along tracks like this, this is what makes the Broome area and the dinosaur coast so special.

She found six prints in total, with the prints believed to come from two different dinosaurs according to paleontologists.

At this one place, preserved in the 95 million-year-old stone of the Lark Quarry, over 3,000 small dinosaur tracks are scattered across the rock surface. The tracks have traditionally been thought to be the only existing evidence of a dinosaur stampede.

Vickers-Rich and Rich have been studying the dinosaurs and mammals of Victoria for nearly 30 years. Lower Cretaceous strata of Victoria have yielded a sizeable amount of dinosaur skeletal material since the late 1970s, resulting in the best-documented polar dinosaur assemblage in the world.

This is cool. We all know dinosaurs existed and having more info on them would be nice. It's a welcome development about dinosaurs and that they weren't just made for movies and cartoons.
