In the center of Bet Zayit, there is a courtyard with trees and a sign pointing in the direction of the dinosaur site. In the rock in the abandoned shelter under the trees you will be able to see the footprints of three-toed dinosaurs, to see how they walked, and to see the path they made. Part of the drawing showing the dinosaurs have been damaged, but you can still see what the dinosaur was like.
Studies have shown that the dinosaurs could run on two legs. Professor Avnimelech of the Hebrew University believed that they were Struthiomimus dinosaurs. These ostrich-like dinosaurs were about 13 feet tall and weighed only about 330 pounds. The age of the tracks is fixed by what is known of the geological structure and history of the Judean Hills, a layer atleast 500 meter thick that constitute a part of a series of strata deposited from the Early Cretcaeous, Barremian to the Late Cretaceous, Campanian period. The strata were the tracks are found are usually assigned to the lowest part of the Cenomanian series, but the possibility that they belong to the Upper Albian may not be excluded. So, the age may be estimated ninety to hundred million years. Prof . Avnimelech estimates that the the Beit Zait tracks are of prime scientific value. They record one of the major links in the biological chain of development on earth, and open a gateway to the spirit of eternity, mirrored in the infinite mutations which have influenced the character of the Earth and life on it.
