New Pterosaur Print Discovered

A very large footprint of a pterosaur has been discovered in Korea. According to Discoveryon:
The footprint was discovered in geological stratum dating back 100 million years and is 35.4 centimeters in length and 17.3 centimeters wide.

There is a trace of three asymmetrical spurs, the typical appearance of a pterosaur.

Before the discovery, the largest pterosaur footprint was that of the Haenamichnus, which was found in the southwestern city of Haenam, South Jeolla Province.
For you Troy folks out there, that is more than a foot long by about half a foot wide. Neat.
