The newly opened Folkestone Museum which specialises in the town’s natural history has added a rare prehistoric footprint to its displays.
The donation was made by Steve Friedrich, a veteran fossil hunter with experience spanning four decades, after he stumbled on it back in September.
He found the 120 million year-old fossil in the Lower Greensand on the beach and it is believed to belong to a reptile that walked on two legs, with three toes on each foot.
It could very well be the youngest known dinosaur track the British Isles has seen.
Steve, a self employed School History Workshop provider, has since found a second loose footprint, which he'll use as part of a talk he's bringing to local schools.
He says: "It was a great feeling to be able to confirm their existence."
The initial remains however, will be available for visitors to see this year.
The museum's admission is free, but donations are appreciated.
