Hunting for Dinosaur Tracks!


(tense music) – What’s going on guys? Now, you’re used to us
bringing you episodes of Breaking Trail where
I’m catching live animals, but, today, we’re gonna do
something a little different. We’re headed off into
the back country of Utah to search for dinosaur tracks! Now, as most of you know, I
absolutely love dinosaurs, so what I’m gonna do is trade in my cowboy hat for this helmet as we ride on these
awesome Polaris RZRs onto the rough
and rugged terrain to search out these tracks. Alright, hop in, guys! This is gonna be awesome! Woo! (engine roars) Yahoo! (tribal theme music) In most of our adventures,
we break trail on foot, however sometimes the best way to cover many miles
of distance quickly is by way of
all-terrain vehicle. Today, the crew and I
are in Hurricane, Utah, one of the best
places in the west to find and get close
to dinosaur tracks. This is awesome,
we finally made it! Let’s head back in there
and find the tracks! Woo! (haunting music) Aw, man, this is epic! Just this backdrop, I
mean, you can’t beat this! It is hot, it is dusty. Look at this, check this out. Do you see all the
dust coming off of me? – [Mark] Oh, yeah. – Woo, it is, what
do you think it is? About 100 degrees
out here, right now? – [Mark] At least. – At least 100 degrees, and look at how bone dry
this is, check this out. Look at that, it
is just red dust. It’s amazing to think
that, at one point in time, dinosaurs were walking right
through this environment. Alright, I think, if we head
down through this ravine, here, we’re gonna find some! Wow, check that out! Dinosaurs passed this way, this is the whole area that we’re gonna be exploring,
right here on the side. That’s where we are. You’ve got Megapnosaurus
and Dilophosaurus tracks. Dilophosaurus are much larger. You see, right there,
huge compared to a human. I can’t imagine what
it would be like to have actually seen
one of these walking in this environment
120 million years ago. Now, let’s go find the tracks! (piano music) And even though
this is sloped down, at one point in time, before water washed through
here and wore the rock away, this could have been flatter, so I’m always
looking at an angle for any indentation in the rock has the potential to be a track. I mean, look how
deceiving this is. That almost looks like
a toe, right there. Wow, I wonder if that
could be a track? It’s not defined enough
to prove that, though. Alright, let’s keep going! This is actually great
substrate, right here. Check this out, look at
this, Mark, look at this. We just found our first
set of dinosaur tracks. This is Megapnosaurus,
right here, a small, upright
walking therapod, and you can see
where this animal moved right through
the environment. Look at this, I’m gonna step
right next to the tracks. Look at that stride! Wow, that’s so cool, walking
right along side dinosaurs! You ever think you’d be
able to do that, Mark? – [Mark] No! I’d never thought I’d
see a dinosaur track. – I know! – [Mark] This is amazing! – Check this one out. That’s actually really cool. So, it took a real
sharp turn, right here, and probably headed
off in that direction, but if you come up here
a little bit further, you got the larger
Dilophosaur tracks. Check this out. These are Dilophosaur tracks. Look how big this animal was! Here, come up through this way, you can see this one best. Look at that! – [Mark] Wow! – Wow, what a giant! Dilophosaurus is famous
because it was featured in Steven Spielberg’s
Jurassic Park. If you remember,
it was the one that had the big frill that came
out and it spit the venom. Now, scientists do not believe that this dinosaur
actually had those frills, but the filmmakers took
the liberty of giving that dinosaur these
traits to make it a little bit more scary. Look at how big they are! In the movie, the
Dilophosaur they featured was much smaller than this, but you can see with my hand
right down there in the track, this is not a carnivore
that you would just wanna stumble upon
out here in the desert. How awesome is that! – [Mark] Did you ever
think you’d be, like, standing right in
a dinosaur track? – No, I didn’t! I’ve never seen dinosaur
tracks before out in the wild, and you can almost feel
the energy of this animal when you put your hand
into the track like that. Okay, so these tracks that
we’re looking at, right here, anybody can come and see these. What we wanna do now is actually
head off into the desert and see if we can find
some for ourselves. You guys ready to do this? – [Mark] Let’s do it! – It’s gonna be dry,
it’s gonna be hot, and it’s gonna be dusty, but I’m pretty confident that we’re gonna find some
tracks of our own! (hopeful music) There’s a hole. Oh, check this out! This could be a track! Yes!
(tense music) Chance, come up
here, look at this! You got one here, one here, wow! I think this is it, I think these are
actual dinosaur tracks! This one, right here,
is almost perfect. Bring your camera up. Come here, come here, come here! Look at this! Look over my shoulder,
look at that. Three distinct toe marks. Alright, I’m gonna blow
the sand on you, ready? Yes, there’s no
question about it, that is an upright
walking therapod, most likely a carnivore, and guessing on the
size of these tracks, I’m saying it’s
probably four feet tall, and close to 11 feet in length. Not an animal that
you would want to run into out here
65 million years ago. Holy cow, this is exciting! Dude, high five! I cannot believe we
actually came across tracks, and look at this, you got one
here, and look at that stride. Here to here, shorter there,
planted, and then off, and who knows, I mean, this rock could have broken apart
millions of years ago, but you got one right
here, and one right there. And, oh my gosh, we actually
came across dinosaur tracks. Now this was objective number
one, find dinosaur tracks. Well, we found them. The good news is that we
still have a couple hours out here in the desert,
and we have those RZRs, so objective number
two is gonna be to head to the sand dunes
and really have some fun. I hope you guys are ready,
’cause this is gonna be awesome! – [Mark] Yeah, come in, guys. (tribal drum music) – [Coyote] Woohoo! What up? – [Mark] What’d you think man? We brought you out in the field! – I know, this is
frickin’ awesome! This is killer!
– I mean, dude! – [Mark] Can you
think of a better trip to come along with, jeez? – Yeah, the walls
in the editing bay do not look like
these mountains. It is amazing out here. (engine roars) (rock music) – [Coyote] Woohoo! Yep, I’m stuck! Woohoo, it’s a little
bumpy, right there! – [Mark] I don’t know
if I got the whole flip, but that was gnarly! – [Coyote] Ouch! – [Mark] You alright? – Well guys, rule number one, if you flip the RZR, is always
to keep your arms inside. Thankfully, I’m walking
away from yet another one. Aw, man! I was barely even turning! I don’t know how
that thing flipped! (tense music) But it, ah, yeah, I flipped it. You know, if I’m not
falling off of a cliff, I’m flipping a vehicle. That’s why we just usually
don’t let me do these things. (laughs) A good lesson here is that if you do roll a
machine like this, you just hold on to
the steering wheel, keep your hands inside, you’re always wearing
your seat belt, always wearing the helmet, and, so far, I’m walking away from this one
completely unscathed. My back and neck might be
a little sore tomorrow, but no broken
bones, no stitches. We’re having to bungee
cord the door shut, ’cause that’s broken. I cracked the top of
it, and, unfortunately, I may have just bought the
Brave Wilderness team a RZR, because this is gonna be
an expensive one to fix. My bad! – [Mark] Woo,
alright Coyote, well, that’s one way to do it in Utah. – Yeah, I say it was an
extremely successful day. We found dinosaur
tracks, that was awesome. Then we came out here to
the dunes to rip up the sand with our RZRs, and I
kind of rolled mine, but the good news is, no
cuts, no broken bones, and, yet again, I walk away from another Breaking
Trail mishap. All I can say is that
Utah is unbelievably epic! – [Chris] Yessir! – I’m Coyote Peterson, be brave, stay wild, always
wear your helmet, we’ll see you on
the next adventure! Here we go! Eh, buckle up! Woo! (engine roars) If you thought flipping
my RZR was a close call, make sure to go back
and watch the time I missed a jump and fell
off a cliff in Arizona. – [Woman] Oh my God! – [Coyote] Yikes,
and don’t forget, subscribe to the Brave
Wilderness channel, so you can join me and the
crew on the next location. (coyote howls)

  1. Im actually surprised you did not brake or sprain a bone no hate you are awesome and thanks for the help in case you or me could run into something bad.

  2. True fact!The Dilophosaurus is almost the exact same size of a velociraptor
    and you should follow the tracks to find the fossils (when the tracks stop dig until you find it)

  3. Cool video. I didn't know about these tracks. I have found fossilized bones in UT. You could even see the inside structure. But, was afraid to take them. It looked like no one had ever seen them because there was a lot. I did research and could not locate any data about finds there. Cool beard btw.

  4. Would be crazy if you found fossilized dino bones on where clusters of tracks were, cause that would have been where a dinosaur fight happened

  5. one question. if these tracks are millions of year before. why they are still there? why they are not washed away by wind, water flow, rain and so on. second thing. if the are no able to washed away by such thing, how those dino able to make that print over there? it should be strong enough to make such indentation. these all make me think that it is next to impossible for these existence of track.

  6. a common question I ask about this channel is "did he die?" And in the future when people find the car, they'll be like "WHO DRIVED THIS AND CAN WE TEACH THEM HOW TO DO IT RIGHT!"

  7. 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💞💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰Saya

  8. Are those real footprints … cuz its impossible for footprints to be preserved like that despite of so much of natiral phenomena.

  9. I thought dinosaurs were dead after the meteor that hit them and they died and we never existed ever again

  10. I ❤️ 🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊ops 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬😡😡😡😡🐲🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖

  11. Coyote sometimes this happens to meNBA got placed on a rug under the sand and then is tipped over so maybe there was a rock and roll. Tire

  12. You should go to Yellowstone with us and I could show you around. I have gone twice with my grand pa. We have not seen moose yet, but we did see buffalo, coyotes, deer. Did not see bear yet either. Zayden
