Abstract

Here we report an artiodactyl trackway from Musandam Peninsula, Sultanate of Oman. Epireliefs of the tracks are preserved in poorly consolidated aeolian deposits now making up the ceiling of a coastal cave. As an interesting morphological feature, the trackway documents the trackmaker negotiating a slippery dune slope at an angle.
