Amazing Ancient Footprints Found Around the World!

(closer examination shows 6 toes)

You may or may not believe this print (above - found in South Africa, said to be billions of years old rock) as a genuine footprint of some unbelievable giant from hundreds of millions of years ago and set into rock, but there have been unusual, either large footprints or very ancient ones found around the world.

Footprints of Eve  117,000 years ago 

This fossilized set of footprints was found in South Africa. They were dated to approximately 117,000 years ago. They are recorded as the oldest known footprints of modern man. These were referred to as Eve's footprints because this woman existed around the time of the DNA Eve from which all Homo Sapiens mitochondria come from. For anyone wondering, she was about a size 7-1/2 American sizes for females today.

In 2013 in India, a geologist found these larger than normal footprints. The prints look like they are a depression in the rock and appear to have leather souled shoes and not bare feet. One set measured 11 inches long and 5 inches in width, the other set was 10 inches long and 4-1/2 inches wide. 

Langebaan Lagoon 
These prints were found in the shore of a lagoon in South Africa. These deposits are 117,000 years old. It is debated greatly because these prints were not clear. 

Discovered in 1976 in Tanzania footprints were found. They appeared to be a man and woman walking side by side. What was unusual about this walking couple was that their prints were set into volcanic ash dating millions of years ago. The prints continue a track for 80 feet and they found little prints following behind. Closer inspection found them to be planted more like how a monkey would walk if he were trying to walk upright, and the toes are unusually placed, the prints smaller than modern day people. They have been controversial in that they are millions of years older than tracks found before. 

Source:  In 1976 famed anthropologist Mary Leaky discovered 70 human footprints in stone in Tanzania known as the Laetoli tracks. Leaky felt they looked like they were made by modern human beings, but that created a problem. The depressions left by our ancestors were in a stratum dated at 3.6 million years. No modern human could have laid down that track since we were not around yet according to evolution. 

Mexico - 12,000 years old
These footprints are being called the first inhabitants of Mexico and are 25,000 years old. They were in a running stream and appear to be that of a man, woman and a 3-year-old child. 

Mexico - 40,000 years 

Source: Preserved in volcanic ash in Southern Mexico, this print is said to be 40,000 years old which clearly would make it the oldest human footprint in America. 

Kenya - 1.53 millions old

These prints are being called the oldest upright human prints. They dated at around 1.5 millions years. The large toe was parallel to other toes showing upright walking and the persons appeared to be about 5'9" tall, as well as one child being in the tracks too. It seems to me for 1.5 millions years ago, 5'9" was rather tall. 

These, like many other prints found in rock around America have been attributed to stylized Native carvings because of the stylized look of them. 

In Baxter Springs, there is what appears very clearly to be a classic footprint shape that is 44 inches long and 22 inches wide. It was written off as a Paul Bunyon hoaxing.

Utah - Newspaper Rock

Six-toed footprint of enormous size drawn onto the rock by the Anasazi. 

This rock depression is said to be the footprint of a giant named Moso who stepped from there to Fiji. 

Source:  Australia: Rex Gilroy has discovered giant footprints in Australia. He has also found hand axes, clubs, pounders, knives, and other stone-tools so huge that only giants with extra large hands and strength could have made use of them. Estimates for the actual size of these giants range from 10 to 12 feet tall and over. Aboriginal legends tells of giants living there when they arrived: "When Giant fellas alive, them big animals still bin walkabout this country, Ground shake when he walk. He eat peoples."


There were some amazing footprints found around the world that defied what we thought we knew about man's emergence on earth. Bones are awesome, but footprints reveal much about where they trekked, when they trekked and if they were upright. Some of the extraordinary sizes are laughed at and explained away, but there are lingering doubts that we have a true understanding on the evolution of "other" man....
