Dinosaur Park - Parque Cretácico - near Sucre (Bolivia)

The park is located near a site where hundreds of fosilized Dinosaur footprints (from various species) were discovered.­

This is the cliff where the footprints are located.­ The vertical slabs used to be horizontal, and they were a muddy shallow lake bed frequently crossed by dinosaurs.­ This was a quarry exploited by a nearby concrete factory, until the discovery of the dinosaur footprints.­
