Geocache Description:



Deutsch

Den Dinosaurierpfad erreicht man, wenn man die westliche Einfahrt verwendet. Nach einigen hundert Metern kann man parken und der Pfad startet. Die Anfahrt ist mit Dinosauriern auf Schildern markiert.

Vor grob 100 Millionen Jahren, während der Kreidezeit, war das heutige Kamenjak eine von mehreren kleinen Inseln in der Nähe von Afrika. Umgeben vom warmen Tethysmeer näherte sich diese Insel nach und nach dem heutigen Standort und der heutigen Form. An Land lebten Dinosaurier, im Wasser schwammen Ammoniten und an den Ufern Rudisten und Austern.

Der Felsen mit den Dinosaurierspuren lag ursprünglich näher am Meer und bestand aus Kalkschlamm. Dieser wurde nur bei Flut mit Wasser bedeckt. Während der Ebbe war der Boden matschig und wurde von den Dinosauriern betreten. In den Spuren wuchsen schnell Algen, die die Zerstörung der Spuren durch spätere Flutwellen verhinderten. Im Laufe der Zeit wurden die Spuren mit weiterem Kalkschlamm überzogen, der sich schließlich erhärtete und die Spuren so konservierte.

Auf circa 600 Metern Länge wird über Tafeln und lebensgroße Modelle erklärt, wie die Gegend zur Zeit der Dinosaurier aussah. Die Informationen beinhalten neben Dinosauriern auch Rudisten und Ammoniten. Der Pfad führt weiter zur Küste, wo man an den Koordinaten fossile Fußabdrücke mehrere Dinosaurier gefunden hat.

Um diesen Earthcache loggen zu dürfen, sende mir bitte die Antworten auf folgende Fragen über die Kontaktfunktion auf meinem Profil.

1. Wieviele Spuren kannst du insgesamt entdecken?
2. In welche Richtung verlaufen die kleineren eingekreisten Spuren (Richtung Meer/Richtung Land)?
3. Welche Art Dinosaurier hat die Spuren hinterlassen? Waren es eher kleine, zweibeinige Theropoden oder große, vierbeinige Diplodocidae? Begründe deine Antwort!
4. Wieviele "Zehen" hatte der Dinosaurier, dessen Spuren mit mehreren kleinen Umrandungen markiert wurden?

Optional kannst du gerne noch ein Foto von dir an den Koordinaten einstellen.

Du kannst sofort loggen und mußt keine Antwort abwarten!

Na Stazu dinosaura stići ćeš preko zapadnog ulaza. Nakon nekoliko stotina metara možeš parkirati i zakoračiti stazom.Dolazak je obilježen tablama s crtežima dinosaura.

Prije dobrih 100 milijuna godina, u doba Krede, današnji Kamenjak je bio jedan od više malih otočića u blizini Afrike. Taj otočić se iz toplog Tethis mora sve više približavao današnjem položaju i obliku. Na kopnu su živjeli dinosauri, u vodi plivali amoniti, a na obali rudisti i kamenice.

Stijena s tragovima dinosaura prvotno se nalazila bliže moru i sastojala se od taloga vapnenca. Bila je pokrivena vodom samo u vrijeme plime. Kod oseke bi tlo ostajalo muljavo, a po njemu bi gazili dinosauri. U njihovim su se tragovima brzo razvijale alge koje su spriječavale da ih nadolazeći plimni valovi unište. Tijekom vremena se na te tragove nataložilo sve više vapna, tako da je stijena konačno očvrsnula i tako su im konzervirani tragovi.

Na 600-tinjak metara dužine se na pločama i modelima dinosaura prirodnih veličina objašnjava kako je izgledala okolina u njihovo doba. Informacije sadrže, osim dinosaura, također rudiste i amonite. Staza vodi dalje do obale, gdje su na gornjim koordinatama pronađeni fosilni otisci stopala nekoliko dinosaura.

Da bi ovaj earthcache smio logirati, pošalji mi odgovore na slijedeća pitanja preko kontaktne funkcije u mom profilu.

1. Koliko tragova - ukupno - opažaš?
2. U kojem se smjeru kreću manji, zaokruženi tragovi? (Smjer more / smjer kopno)?
3. Koje vrste dinosaura su ostavile svoje tragove? Jesu li to bile pretežno manje dvonožne terapode ili velike četveronožne diplodocidee? Obrazloži Tvoj odgovor!
4. Koliko "nožnih prstiju" je imao dinosaur čiji su tragovi markirani s nekoliko manjih „okvira“?

Opcionalno možeš rado unijeti i fotografiju koja te prikazuje na gornjim koordinatama.

Logirati možeš odmah i ne moraš čekati na odgovor!

English

You can reach the dinosaur trail by taking the western entrance. After some hundred meters you can park your car and start walking along the trail. Signs with a little dinosaur on it show you the way.

About 100 million years ago, during Cretaceou, what today is Kamenjak was one of several small islands near Africa. Surrounded by the warm Tethys Ocean, the island little by little came closer to today's location and shape. Dinosaurs live on land, ammonites, rudists and oysters in the water.

The rocks with dinosaur trace on them were originally closer to the sea and were made of lime mud. This was covered with water at high tide only. During low tide, the ground was muddyy and was entered by the dinosaurs. In the footsteps quickly grew algae, which prevented the destruction of the traces by subsequent tidal waves. Over time, the traces were covered with additional lime which hardened and preserved the steps.

On a walk of about 600 meters several dinosaurs are shown as models in actual size. The path continues until the coordinates, where you'll find fossilized steps of dinosaurs.

To log this earth cache, send the answers to the followings questions to me via the contact function at my profile here on geocaching.com

1. How many steps can you discover?
2. In which direction did the dinosaur with the smaller circeled steps walk (towards ocean/towards land)?
3. What type of dinosaur has left the traces? Were it rather small, bipedal Theropods or large, four-legged Diplodocidae? Give reasons for your answer!
4. How many "toes" did the dinosaur have, whose steps are marked with multiple smaller circles?

If you want to, you can add a picture of you at the coordinates to your log.

You can log immediately. You don't have to wait for an answer.
