Rarely, tiny dinosaur tracks, such as these, are recovered from the coal mines of Carbon and Emery Counties in east-central Utah. Dinosaur bones are usually found in one area or formation and tracks in another, but rarely are the two ever found together. Tridactyl (three-toed) tracks have been found in the rocky ledges above the C-LDQ horizon, but they were not in association with any fossil bones as found in the Quarry. One expert supposes that these tracks were made by a Stegosaur.
