A group of Italian and Swish scientists consisting of geologists and paleontologists recently discovered a footprint of a large prehistoric reptile at an altitude of 2,200 meters above in the Altopaino Della Gardetta in Peidmont Region. The findings were published on the Peer J journal.

The discovery was a ground breaking one as the unearthed footprints dated back to a few million years after the Permian-Triassic extinction event. [1]

The team even reconstructed the body of the creature which they suspected to have lived along an ancient coastline. 

Once a seabed, the muddy soil upon which the footprint was embedded has risen overtime to form the Alp’s rocky backbone.  The creature was classified as Isochirotherium gardettensis, named after the discovery zone. [1]

 The once submerged Alps are believed to be a coral reef in the past now hiding many fossils below.
