    A group of paleontologists found a giant dinosaur footprint in Bolivia.

    In southern Bolivia, a group of paleontologists found a huge footprint, belonging to a carnivorous theropod dinosaur, which lived somewhere about 80 million years ago.

    The discovery was made in the Maragua area in Sucre.

    According to paleontologist Omar Medina, the found footprint, which is 1,15 meters in diameter, may be the biggest one discovered yet.

    Another Argentinian paleontologist Sebastian Apestegiya said that the dinosaur might be more than 12 meters in height.
