Dinosaur footprints discovered on Arabian Peninsula

Dinosaur footprints recently discovered on the Arabian Peninsula is not just the first of their kind in the area, but they also make known more about the group behavior of the ancient animal.

The footprints left by a group of eleven plant eaters that walk on every four, along with a lone dino so as to stand on its hind legs, were found on a seashore mudflat in Yemen.

The second group of footprints, which start in the different direction, belonged to a straight standing dinosaur called an ornithopod. The scientists say it is not likely the sauropods were in risk or else felt in danger if they crossed pathway with the other dino, since it's too a plant eater.
