United Kingdom: on the beach found the remains of marine reptiles




The fossilized remains of prehistoric reptiles have been found in the English fisherman Reserve Somerset. Nick Collard found the bones of a plesiosaur — five-foot sea creature that lived 188 million years ago — at the beach in Bridgwater Bay. The sample was extracted from the ground in the four blocks of rock, and then studied and dated by scientists from London's Natural History Museum.

Plesiosaur — a very rare find, scientists are usually very happy to find a single bone or tooth — and the skeleton remained virtually intact and well preserved.
