Costalomo

Costalomo (Salas de los Infantes, Burgos, Castilla y Leon, Spain)
Lower Cretaceous (Hauterivian-Barremian)
Asset of Cultural Interest, Archaeological Zone.


In the more than 200 tracks of the Costalomo site, there is a large variety of ichnotypes: theropods and avian theropods, quadruped ornithopods and sauropods. Costalomo is of great scientific interest, particularly due to the conservation of the ichnites, in the form of convex epireliefs, an exceptional case in the world bibliography. Some of the theropod trails ichnites are large in size, including one of the longest tracks known in Spain.
