Dinosaur steps in mud.
Dinosaur leaves foot impression (mold) in mud.
The next flood fills in the foot impression with a new layer of mud creating a cast.
After the mud hardens into stone we come along years later and separate the layers again. If it wasn't for the high amount of mica in the stone - the layers of stone would not separate as easily.
Above is what a dinosaur track looks like from the side after it is removed from the ground . One always gets a mold (impressed) track and a cast (raised) track . However, in the removal process one track or the other may be damaged . We make every effort to keep each track intact .
