Tiny baby steps discovered

I am sure that most people have already seen this, but some footprints of two stegosaurus hatchlings have been discovered in Colorado, USA.

The Denver Post has the story.

The discovery adds little to our knowledge as such, though it appears that those tracks are 1/11th of the size of the tracks of adult stegosaurus. A ratio which has also been observed when looking at other hatchling dinosaur tracks. Something which paleontologist Robert Bakker thinks might be "statistically significant". Personally, I'm not convinced.

Morrison Natural History Museum has a news release about the discovery.
