Sauropod tracks in the Early Jurassic of Poland

Acta Palaeontologica Polonica 42 (4), 1997: 533-538

After the discovery of Early Jurassic sauropod tracks in northern Italy, Polish Liassic strata revealed a second comparably early record of sauropod footprints in Europe. In comparison with the Italian material, described tracks seem to be left by juvenile or small primitive sauropods, presumably 4.4 m and 5.5 m long.

Key words: Sauropoda, tracks, Early Jurassic, Poland.
