Did you know scientists have found thousands of fossil footprints? These footprints are often found in long trackways. But footprints aren’t usually preserved today. They quickly disappear.

So, how’d we get so many thousand fossil footprints?

Well, the global flood of Noah’s day created the perfect conditions to bury and preserve footprints. As creatures moved to higher ground to escape the rising floodwaters, they left behind footprints and then the rising waters buried them. Eventually, the creatures who made those footprints were drowned and buried too, and that’s why we find fossil footprints before we find the fossils of the creatures themselves!
