Scientists Feud over Stampeding Dinosaurs

At Dinosaur Stampede National Monument, large footprints are illuminated along the right, while little footprints are spread across the remainder of the rock face.

Footprints in the Australian outback tell a 95 million-year-old story about a herd of little dinosaurs drinking from a watering hole…and a giant tyrannosaur that suddenly attacked them. It’s a fossil record that shows a dinosaur stampede. Or does it?

My story, in partnership with NOVA, airs today on PRI’s The World.

Anthony Romilio (top) and Scott Hocknull (bottom) debate just what a herd of dinosaurs were doing 95 million years ago.
