One of the tracks analyzed in this research (Novella Razzolini / ICP)

The analysis of a dinosaur trackway from the Barranco de la Canal (La Rioja) site reveals an injury in the left foot of an ornithopod dinosaur. The animal performed an abnormal gait probably due to the pain caused by the pathology. The investigation was led by researchers at the ‘Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont’ (ICP) and published in the journal Cretaceous Research.
