Baby stegosaurus tracks reconstructed in Colorado

Researcher Matthew Mossbrucker, director of Colorado’s Morrison Natural History Museum, discovered the first sets of baby stegosaurus tracks ever found in Morrison in 2006 and 2007. Now, LiveScience reports that a 3D modeling technique called photogrammetry has let researchers reconstruct the baby dinosaurs’ tracks as they might have looked millions of years ago. The scientists hope that the markings will teach them how the dinos’ older counterparts moved.
