British paleontologists have discovered a rare 200 million-year-old Ichthyosaur specimen from a private collection 22 years after it was originally found. Ichthyosaurs were a type of sea-going reptile that lived during the time of the dinosaurs.
The new fossil belongs to a rare species of “sea reptile” known as Wahlisaurus massarae and is the second known specimen of the entire species.
