Spiny Nodosaur Footprints Found

Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD

The corridor between Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Md., is known as “Dinosaur Alley,” because so many of the beasts’ fossils were discovered during iron mining in the 18th and 19th centuries, according to Weishampel.  “Today, Maryland remains the only source of Early Cretaceous dinosaur fossils on the East Coast.”
