Dinosaur Chase Re-Created in 3D

Once, dinosaurs strutted around the Earth as if they owned the place. That's at least a fun way to imagine them. The stride marks they left behind, preserved as fossilized footprints, provide important clues about their lives. They can help reveal who was chasing who, and who was running for their lives.

Researchers at the Royal Veterinary College in London have been able to reconstruct a dinosaur chase from 112 million year-old footprints. Their findings were published in the journal PLOS ONE. Watch the video of the 3D reconstruction from PLOS Media:
