Dinosaur tracks found in NE China

CHANGCHUN-- Dinosaur tracks have been found in northeast China's Jilin province, according to an announcement by scientists from China, the Republic of Korea and the United States.

"The tracks include footprints of hadrosaurs that are 55 cm. long. The trackmaker's body could have reached 7 meters long," Xing Lida, associate professor at the China University of Geosciences, told Xinhua.

Several tracks of carnivorous dinosaurs were also discovered with various footprint sizes ranging from 43 cm. to 21 cm., Xing said.
