Tyrannosaurus Rex footprint discovered in remote Alaska National Park

ANCHORAGE, Alaska A giant footprint discovered Nov. 28 in a remote Alaskan national park turned out to be a Tyrannosaurus Rex footprint.

The exciting find is the first evidence that the once-terrifying beasts roamed the region, according to park rangers.

“RAWR!” Katmai National Park officials tweeted a photo of the footprint found in Aniakchak National Monument, which local officials say is known as “one of the wildest and least-visited places in the national park system.”

“If you saw that, would you have recognized it as a trail?” Ranger wrote.

The memorial surrounds the Aniakchak volcano in the southwestern region of Alaska.

T. rex is one of the largest and most feared carnivores, according to the American Museum of Natural History. The behemoth weighed between 11,000 and 15,500 pounds. Scientists say it grew to be 40 feet long and 12 feet tall from ground to back.

No doubt other animals crouched in front of T. rex’s 60 jagged banana-sized teeth, according to Fossils, Facts and Finds. The dinosaur roamed the area about 65 million years ago.
