NEO: Dinosaur Skin Impression Preserved in Rock

The palaeontological site of Fumanya, in the Berguedà region, is well-known for containing numerous samples of fossilised dinosaur footprints. It is there that researchers from the UAB and the Catalan Institute of Palaeontology recently discovered some very peculiar marks on a rock. The marks correspond to the relief of the skin of a dinosaur which had lain down in the mud some 66 million years ago.
