Archaeologists working in Mongolia's Gobi Desert have discovered an enormous fossilized dinosaur footprint that is nearly the size of a person!

The incredible find measures three-and-a-half feet long by two-and-a-half feet wide, making it one of the largest dinosaur footprints ever discovered.

Researchers believe the print, which is thought to be between 70 and 90 million years old, was created by a dinosaur stepping in mud and the spot being subsequently filled with sand.

Based on an examination of the discovery, experts believe the specific species of dinosaur which created the print was a creature known as a Titanosaur.

Although the seventy ton dinosaur may have met its demise millions of years ago, the Mongolian discovery clearly shows that it left a lasting impression.
