Bones Of Ichthyosaur Found In Yugra

The expedition of scientists has discovered the bones of ichthyosaur in Berezovsky District of Yugra. The finding is exhibited in Khanty-Mansiysk at the Museum of Nature and Man, as “Uralinformbyuro” reports.

      The excavations were carried out at the mouth of the Lopsiya Rriver, which means “the river of debris” translated from the local dialect. Two vertebrae of ichthyosaur were literally sticking out of the rock. At the same place the scientists discovered fossilized shells and mollusks preserved from ancient times. “Unfortunately, only two vertebrae have been found, these findings don’t make it possible to determine the exact species of marine lizards which the ichthyosaur living 150 million years ago belonged to” - one of the paleontologists said.
