Did dinosaurs walk the earth less than a thousand years ago?
This photo would seem to suggest just that.
This is a montage of three photos I took on May 30th 2008 near Blanding Utah.
The bottom right photo is a picture of myself standing under Kachina Bridge, in Natural Bridges National monument near Blanding Utah. If you will look closely just off the end of my walking stick you will see a petroglyph that has the classic form of a dinosaur.The petroglyphs in this area have all been confirmed as Anasazi work. The time of Anasazi dwelling in this area has dated to a 400 year space of time dating from 800A.D. to 1200A.D.
The top center photo is a zoomed in and color corrected version of the same petroglyph,
(note no changes have been made to the photo other than grayscaling it to make it easier to see.)
The Third and final photo is of my wife standing in front of a display of a Plateosaurus at the Dinosaur Museum in Blanding Utah. Their Website can be found Here. I find the resemblance between the Plateosaurus and the petroglyph to be far too similar than can be explained away as a coincidence.
If Anyone wishes they can see or visit the location where the petroglyph was photographed at
