Severe Drought Exposes Dinosaur Tracks in Texas

Texas, A severe drought has exposed 113 million-year-old dinosaur tracks on a riverbed in central Texas in the USA.

The massive tracks, which belonged to a single acrocanthosaurus, had not been seen since 2000, as they sat under water and several layers of sediment, BBC news reported.

The tracks at Dinosaur Valley State Park in Texas are some of the best preserved in the world, said park superintendent Jeff Davis.

Almost all of Texas is facing a drought according to the US Drought Monitor.

Last week, more than 87% of the state was experiencing one of the three most serious drought categories - severe, extreme and exceptional.

The summer's excessively dry, hot conditions caused a river in the central Texas park to dry out almost entirely, revealing the dinosaur tracks.
