DINOSAUR TRAILS




DINOSAUR TRAILS  With its wealth of fossilised bones, trees, plants and shells, Lesotho is known for having the largest concentration of dinosaur footprints in the world. It also has the distinction of having the world’s earliest known mammalian skeletal material which links the reptiles and the mammals.  Many of the earliest known dinosaur fossil discoveries in Lesotho were made by missionaries exploring the area. Some of the dinosaurs that were found in Lesotho are Lesothosaurus, Massospondylus and Heterodontosaurus. There are many dinosaur footprint locations, withsites at Morija, Subeng Stream and Tsikoane close to Leribe, Moyeni, Matsieng and Mohale’s Hoek.
