Parks Canada confirms the rock holding fossilized tracks was found in the P.E.I. National Park, and asks anyone who discovers anything similar to leave it in place and contact park staff. (Patrick Brunet/submitted)

The recent discovery of a set of fossilized footprints could put P.E.I. on the world stage in the annals of ancient reptiles.

The specimen found in the P.E.I. National Park still needs to be verified, but Nova Scotia geologist John Calder is already predicting that the record preserved in rock will add significantly to the scientific community's knowledge.
