So you’re walking along the beach, looking for seashells. The best you can normally hope to find is a conch, perhaps a sand dollar, maybe even a message in a bottle. Then again, you might find a fossilized dinosaur footprint. Wait, what?
Well, that’s what happened to Bindi Lee Porth, as she was hunting for shells at Cable Beach, a popular tourist spot in the town of Broome, Australia.
While Broome is known for a pair of 130-million-year-old dinosaur footprints, Porth is the first to spot fossilized footprints like these in such a well-trodden section of the tourist beach – and she did it despite having walked this stretch of sand an estimated 100-plus times.
Porth told BBC she felt an "amazing sense of energy" coming from under her foot, and dug around to find the ancient dino footprints (which we can only assume were created by a T-Rex chasing a prehistoric Jeff Goldblum).
So next time you find yourself taking a seaside stroll, make sure you look down every once in a while. You never know what you might find.
