Among the dinosaurs represented at the site are the Carnotaurus – a carnivorous dinosaur with almost ridiculously small limbs – and the Ankylosaurus, an armored plant-eater with a clubbed tail. There are also footprints from a gargantuan herbivore known as a Titanosaur, which would have weighed in at more than 100 tons.
