9,000-year-old rock art discovered among dinosaur footprints in Brazil

A new study finds that as early as 9,400 years ago, hunter-gatherers in what is now Brazil created dozens of stunning rock art designs next to fossilized dinosaur footprints.

Researchers have described petroglyphs and dinosaur tracks dating back to the Paleolithic era Cretaceous period (145 million to 66 million years ago), in a study published March 19 in the journal Scientific reports. They believe that ancient humans intentionally placed the rock art next to dinosaur prints, as many of the petroglyphs are only 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters) from the fossilized marks, and some of the glyphs appear to be illustrations of the prints. .
