Scientists in England Discover Giant 180-Million-Year-Old Sea Dragon
Ichthyosaurs were large marine reptiles similar in shape to dolphins, and they grew up to be around 82 feet.
What began as a routine landscaping measure in England turned into a historic find when the remains of a massive sea dragon were discovered.
This 32-foot long fossil that lived 180 million years ago was discovered in February 2021.
A conservationist found the remains during a routine draining of a lagoon island for re-landscaping.
Known as sea dragons because of their large eyes and teeth, ichthyosaurs went extinct around 90 million years ago.
