Millions of years ago, a young plesiosaur died and sunk to the bottom of what is now the Southern Ocean. Recently, paleontologists found the well-preserved skeleton of this unfortunate juvenile in Antarctica.
For those who doesn't know (that's including me), Plesiosaurs were giant sea reptiles that lived around 210 to 65 million years ago during the dinosaur era.
It was so interesting that the paleontologist could find this rare juveniles Plesiosaurs with its stomach stone in place.
However, some of its paddle-like flippers, part of the end of its tail and its skull were missing.
