Measuring nearly one meter long, the footprint is the largest of its kind found in the English county of Yorkshire.
The fossil nests are part of one of the largest dinosaur hatcheries in the world, found in central India.
The fossilized remains, which consisted of teeth and post-cranial bone pieces, represent a diverse theropod community that lived up until the Cretaceous–Paleogene mass extinction event.
In recent years, Precambrian lifeforms have generated an ever-increasing interest because they revealed a rich eukaryotic diversity prior to the Cambrian explosion of modern animals.
The research that went into these discoveries was published on Wednesday in Nature. Mbiresaurus was a sauropodomorph, a long-necked dinosaur, and is estimated to have been about six feet tall.
Researchers claim this discovery may contribute to how early humans split apart from apes to start their own evolutionary line.
Fossils discovered in Morocco indicate that the ancient marine reptiles were adapted to freshwater conditions and may have spent their entire lives there.
"Based on all the fossil evidence we currently have, T. rex stands alone as the single giant apex predator from the end of the Age of Dinosaurs in North America.”
The newly-discovered dino, the Meraxes gigas, was another predator that had a large skull and short arms like the Tyrannosaurus rex.
Irish paleontologists have uncovered why hundreds of fossil frogs were buried under an ancient swamp millions and millions of years ago.
