Broome Dinosaur Trackmakers

Fossilised tracks around Broome were made by theropod, sauropod, ornithopod and thyreoporan dinosaurs.


Theropods were carnivores (meat-eaters). They were bipedal (walked on two legs) and had sharp claws and teeth to catch and devour their prey.


Sauropods were gigantic, long-necked, quadrupedal (walked on four legs) herbivores (plant-eaters). 


The ornithopods that made the tracks in the Broome Sandstone were bipedal (walked on two legs) herbivores (plant-eaters).


Thyreophorans were small to very large in size, with armour plates and spikes, and were quadrupeds (walked on four legs).
