Green Graffiti: Monstrous footprints of the mysterious creatures


big animal footprints

Since the prehistoric times, our planet has been home to so many mysterious creatures. While some vanished out of existence completely, others are still there peeping through those remote haunts of extinction. They keep on reminding us that their tale, the Yetis’ and the dinosaurs in particular, is not yet over. Various reports citing researchers and paleontologists confirming their existence through some massive footmarks substantiate the above-stated belief. Here are the images of the monstrous footprints of the mysterious creatures to alert those who are skeptical about their existence in the past and present as well.

1) Saurapod

Location: Paluxy riverbed near Glen Rose, Texas.

Discoverer: Anonymous.

Speculation: Fossilized human footprint alongside a dinosaur footprint seems to be impossible. Were humans there in the Pre-Jurassic era?

9) Rare dinosaur footmarks

monstrous footmarks 10

Location: Vermilion Cliffs National Monument.

Discoverer: University of Utah geologists.

Speculation: Geologist Seiler says:

The direction the dinosaurs walked either was dictated by the large dunes that bounded this wet area, or it could be communal behavior, like walking together as a pack.

10) Yet another Yeti footprint:

Location: Nepal- Tibet border region of the Himalayas.

Discoverer: A team of mountaineers heading for Everest.

Speculation: The footprint twice broader than a normal human foot testifies that Yetis are still here.
