Fake dinosaur footprint.

Very quick post.

Geology class
A faked dinosaur footprint. A4 clipboard for scale.
On a field trip to Arran.
In 1985
We don't know who carved this fake dinosaur footprint, but the carver didn't notice that he (she?) cut across several sediment beds (NNE to SSW lineation in this view), marking it as an evident fake.
Photo has suffered from fungus and bad storage for years before being scanned. The carving is pretty unrealistic too.
Prompted by the footprints recently reported from Skye.
