GEOLOGY: Walking in the Footprints of Dinosaurs

Discovered by Dr Ali Ait-Kaci, it is the first giant Sauropod footprint found in sub-Saharan Africa. From its massive dimensions of 96 centimetres and absence of the crescent-shaped characteristics of the front legs these are believed to be from the rear legs of Brachiosaurus, a plant eating dinosaur that is thought to have weighed around fifty tonnes.
