I’ve uploaded a couple more datasets to the neoichnology section.
Not a lot to say here, human foot, wearing a wellington boot, in mud. I recorded this for making a guide (which may appear soon), and thought I may as well upload it and add to the collection.
Horse footprints and raindrop impressions
This is a bit more interesting. While out walking the other day, I came across a patch of sand in a horse field. I’ve seen the horses use the sand for dust bathing in summer, but now winter is here, they’ve clearly just been walking over it. I recorded it because it’s a great example of raindrop impressions. It’s been raining for the last few days (when I took the photos it was the first time in a while that the rain stopped), so these are very recent.
We see impressions like this commonly in the fossil record, including around dinosaur footprints, so it’s nice to have a good 3D record of this from the modern day.
The models are available in the Neoichnology section. Neither has been scaled, but the scale bar is present in the model.
