اكتشاف أكبر هيكل عظمى تام في بريطانيا لـ"تنين البحر" عمره نحو 180 مليون سنة

The largest complete skeleton of a “sea dragon” was discovered in Britain about 180 million years ago.

Scientists have hailed the largest and most complete giant fossil skeleton of a “sea dragon” found in the UK as one of the greatest discoveries in British fossil history, according to Russia Today.

At Rutland Water in Rutland, scientists discovered a 32-foot (10-meter) skeleton of a dolphin-like ichthyosaur. Ichthyosaur can grow up to 82 feet (25 m). Reports indicate that the skull of the discovered giant weighed a ton and was 180 million years old. The first ichthyosaurs were called “sea dragons” because they had very large teeth and eyes, which were discovered by hunter and archaeologist Mary Annning in the early 19th century.

Dr. Dean Lomax, a global expert and archaeologist on ichthyosaurs at the University of Manchester, says: ‘Although numerous ichthyosaur fossils have been found in Britain, the largest skeleton ichthyosaur Rutland ever found is remarkable. In the United Kingdom.

It’s truly an unprecedented invention and one of the greatest in British archeology. ” , Also became extinct 90 million years ago, and their size ranged from one meter to more than 25 meters in length and resembled dolphins.

The newly discovered skeleton was excavated by a team of expert archaeologists from across the UK between August and September. Dr. Mark Evans of the British Antarctic Survey said: “I have been studying Jurassic fossil reptiles in Rutland and Leicestershire for over 20 years.

When I first saw Joe Davis’ model, I could tell it was the largest ichthyosaur known in both districts. “This is a very important discovery nationally and internationally, but it is very important to the people of Rutland and the surrounding area,” Nigel said. Larkin, Restoration Specialist, Fossils: “Safely locating, recording, and collecting this important specimen is a very complex process.”
