Sea Monster Swam the Oceans 170 Million Years Ago

  • Deborah Block

Scientists are studying the skeleton of an ancient sea monster. It was discovered in Scotland 50 years ago, but it wasn’t until more recently -- using modern fossil extraction methods -- that the bones could be pulled out of hard rock. As we hear from Deborah Block, the previously unknown reptile lived in the oceans during the time of the dinosaurs.
