Paleontologists find 'perfectly preserved' dinosaur skin in South Korea

Paleontologists in South Korea have found a set of footprints from the Cretaceous Period containing well-preserved traces of a dinosaur's skin.

The prints were made by a blackbird-sized Minisauripus, the smallest known theropod, and each measure just an inch long.

"These are the first tracks ever found where perfect skin impressions cover the entire surface of every track," says Martin Lockley, Professor Emeritus of Geology at the University of Colorado Denver.
