Tetrapod trackway on Valentia Island, Iveragh peninsula, west coast Ireland. On the rock at the top of the sea cliffs on Valentia Island is a fossil trackway. This is a series of footprints from a tetrapod - a large amphibian animal that walked on soft sediment 385 million years ago, during the Devonian Period. Devonian tetrapod trackways (footprints) have been reported from Australia, Brazil, Greenland, Scotland and Ireland. The Valentia trackways, which were discovered by Iwan Stossel in 1994, are the most extensive of the Devonian trackways.
