Dinosaur metatarsal fragments and fossils, dating back 70 to 95 million years, were found in the state of Chihuahua, announced the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

Between the municipalities of Ojinaga, Coyame del Sotol and Aldama 17 areas were discovered containing fossils which give evidence of the region’s sea level during the Cretaceous period.

The INAH said that “the majority of the fossils found were from marine invertebrates like species of shells, snails and ammonites.”

In Aldama, metatarsal fragments from a dinosaur in the hadrosaurus family were discovered. Fossilized wood was also found close to the bones.

Both the fossils and bone fragments are from the same period and it is very probable that the fossilized wood and hadrosaurus bones are from a beach paleoenvironment, the institute said.
