The question that piqued my interest isn't directly related to tracking, because the animal in question has been extinct for a few dozen million years: What species of dinosaur made these 3 toed 6 inch long tracks?

Yes, it is and we already have a few questions on the subject,

The current close votes on the dino track one aren't because its off topic but rather because it might be hard to answer. However, I highly doubt that it will be closed.

    The close votes on the dino track question are aging off, so it seems likely it will stay open. Have you considered posting the dino questions at Biology? They have a dinosaurs tag or alternately trying to get one of the dino experts there to visit here? Commented Apr 17, 2018 at 14:00

    @JamesJenkins There is nothing exactly similar on Biology. Commented Apr 17, 2018 at 14:43

To address Dinosaur tracks directly.

I was an early opponent of questions about Dinosaur tracks. I voted to close several posts. The close votes either aged off, or the posts were re-opened by vote.

In the process I did a bit of research and have changed my position on the subject.

I believe they are clearly inscope for 3 reason:

  1. Community consensus to close these questions did not develop.
  2. There are US state parks with a primary focus on Dinosuar tracks like Dinosaur Valley State Park; Mapping Dinosaur Tracks
  3. We have a number of open questions with good answers about the subject
