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,
- Are these tracks in the mud tortoise/turtle tracks?
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.
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:
- Community consensus to close these questions did not develop.
- There are US state parks with a primary focus on Dinosuar tracks like Dinosaur Valley State Park; Mapping Dinosaur Tracks
- We have a number of open questions with good answers about the subject
