Plesiosaur fossil found in Antarctica

Posted on Saturday, December 16 2006 @ 09:50:13 CET by


Scientists found a fossil of a young plesiosaur, a marine reptile that lived about 70 million years ago, in Antarctica.
"The fossil remains represent one of the most-complete plesiosaur skeletons ever found and is thought to be the best-articulated fossil skeleton ever recovered from Antarctica," the U.S. National Science Foundation said.

Long-necked plesiosaurs swam in the oceans in the southern ocean when the Earth was far warmer than it is today, the Foundation said in a joint statement with the Argentine Antarctic Institute, which co-funded the exhibition.

The skeleton is about 5 feet long, one sixth the size of an adult, and its stomach area was very well-preserved.
