There are about 20 three-toed tracks, belonging to a flesh eating dinosaur of the Thropod family.
The footprints are very well defined and are a lot larger than other prints found here or in Lesotho in the past. It is the first evidence that such a large theropod lived in this area. It is situated in silt stone along what must have been a slow moving river, about 20 minutes hike away from the Chalets on the side of the mountain and according to the paleontologists, these animals lived about 190 million years ago.
The footprints may be viewed by arrangement only by day visitors, who will pay a nominal fee to do the hike to see the prints.
An academic paper has been written by professor Emese Brodie But is very technical and difficult to read.
