The existing well visible prints are of two-legged three-toed dinosaur. Approximate age of the prints is 160 million years.
The prints were left in the red Etjio sandstone at the time it was a soft clay. The prints can be traced for about 30 metres.

There is a camping site near by and fees are payable at the farm house.
