Description

The movements of animals across the landscape are sometimes captured in the tracks they leave behind. They can last only a few moments or, if the conditions are right, they can endure millions of years.  Through original specimens new to the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections, this exhibit explores the phenomenon of tracks and track ways. How tracks form, how old they are, what they tell us about ancient landscapes and the animals that made them are all investigated in this compelling exhibit. From the ancient tracks of dinosaurs to very early humanoid footprints, right up to today and tracks left by animals in our backyard, these thought provoking traces help us imagine the animals that made them.
