Back in Germany, the museum's director Prof. Dr. Ulrich Joger started the proceedings to get an official permission for the excavation of the finds and the transport to Germany. Permission was granted in the autumn of 2006, and a pre-expedition to the excavation site left Germany in November 2006. The skeleton was as it had been left after the first expedition. About one kilometer away from the site another discovery was made – tracks of Dromaeosauridae (Raptors) were found over a length of 40 metres. The first evidence of raptors in Africa! These tracks were described as Paravipus didactyloides in 2011.
