This is a great specimen for seeing how sharp your eyes might be (click on Full View to get a better look). It shows footprints of different species crossing paths. This does not mean that the animals who made the tracks were in the same place at the same time, but it might be evidence of travel along a pathway to something they all needed for survival, such as water.
