Search for and Touch the Foot of a Dinosaur
When some bones were found on the sea bed in Bale in 1992 nobody realised how important the discovery really was. It was a 'discovery of the century'. The bones retrieved from the sea were in fact dinosaur bones. It has been estimated that at least ten dinosaur species lived in this area. One of them is the Brachiosaurus, one of the largest dinosaurs ever to roam the earth whose weight reached 30 tons and could grow to be up to 25 metres long. This discovery put Bale in the World List of Paleontological Sites. Bale's site, as far as it is known, is the only find in the world that has dinosaur remains under the sea. It is believed that some of the bones are 200 million years old.
Make sure you visit Bale and the MMC “Ulika” whose showcases encompass the bones of these huge animals, touch the footprints and remains of these remarkable creatures that used to rule the world.
