Long Description:
The sauropod footprints of "jazida de Bouro I" were discovered in June 1995 by Professor of Geography and member of the Heritage Association of Caldas da Rainha, António Xavier, a lover of nature and fishing. At the time, large depressions found at the site known as "Pedras Negras" (Dark Stones), in mountain range of Bouro, seemed to him to match the footprints of dinosaurs. These footprints of dinosaurs that met the surface of a stratum of limestone is Upper Jurassic. On the site can be found at least two or three brands that suggest the presence of footprints tridactyl.
