A dinosaur track!

It’s not a particularly fresh track.

But’s much, much fresher than 65 million years!

Its scientific name is Meleagris gallopavo.

It’s better known as the wild turkey.

Turkeys are birds, which are a type of theropod dinosaur.

Here’s my hand next to the largest tracks for comparison:
