Footprints of ancient creatures are usually preserved in soft mud or sand that
hardened into rock. With scientific analysis, they can reveal the size and weight of the creature and if it walked on two or four feet. When footprints form a track, they can tell us how fast the creature moved. The longer the stride, the greater the speed. If several tracks are found together, it may indicate that it moved in herds.
