Leander Has Dinosaur Tracks

Dinosaurs? Yep. The geology and weather in the area has helped preserve a number of fossils, including a set of dinosaur tracks possibly made by an Acrocanthosaurus. The tracks are on private land, but the City of Leander began work on reconstructing a set of prints in the Old Town Leander Park for public viewing this year. Leander is also the site of “Leanderthal Lady” a 10,000- to 13,000-year-old skeleton found in 1983.
