National news crews descend on Glen Rose after drought leads to 113-million-year-old dino tracks.

Everything is bigger in Texas, right?

And now that includes some ginormous dinosaur prints discovered in a dried up riverbed at Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose.

I was enjoying my morning coffee and watching Good Morning America today when a segment about the recent discovery popped up.

I grabbed my cell phone and snapped a few photos I’ll show you in a separate post.

The dino tracks are from around 113 million years ago (holy cow!) and likely belong to species of Acrocanthosaurus and Sauroposeidon.

As an adult, the Acrocanthosaurus reportedly stood 15 feet tall and weighed close to seven tons.

The Sauroposeidon stood about 60 feet tall and weighed 100,000 pounds (about 44 tons).

This might be the only cool thing that’s come out of this summer’s drought.

The tracks are only expected to be visible for a short time because once the drought ends, they will disappear beneath the surface.

(See how I did that?)
