Largest dinosaur footprints in Europe discovered in Swiss Alps





Scientists have found the largest dinosaur footprints ever to be discovered in Europe - half way up a Swiss mountain.

The 15-inch-long prints belonged to a carnivore from the Triassic period that would have been the biggest predator on the planet at the time.

A team of palaeontologists from the Natural History Museum in Basel found the prints at 3,300 metres on a mountain in Ela Nature Reserve, Switzerland's largest park.
