The Lοch Ness mοпsοοп, which was estimated tο be 3 meters lοпg, was discοvered dead iп a river iп Mοrοccο.
Although many prehistoric animals have been discovered in this upper system, scientists were surprised to discover a plesiosaur fossil. Because they are in tune with the ocean.
Therefore, research led by paleologist Nick Loÿgrich from the University of Bath (UK) was able to completely disrupt the definition of a club-headed lizard, where it is identified as the Kesai species. it is a famous long-necked “marine reptile”.
According to Sci-News, the stick-headed lizards existed in the square from 235 million to 66 million years ago, that is, in the three periods Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. Its fossils are found in Every Continent, most commonly Αustralia, Europe and North Αmerica. But there is a kind of fresh water.
They are distinguished as a very high weight compared to their body and their four legs developed as oars, suitable for life in the water. The famous “Loch Ness Moßster” is described as resembling a club-headed lizard.
Going tack to the Kem Kem specimens, include the bones and teeth of an adult 3 m long and the forelimbs of a 1.5 m long. “It’s silly, to see these individual approaches tll us a lot about the ecosystem and the ancient animals in it,” said Dr. Loÿgrich.
Bones and teeth were found scattered in very distant regions along the Kem Kem river system, suggesting that this orgaism may have been extended through. During the hunt, they also found fossils of more than a dozen other prehistoric monsters, including the “water dinosaur” Spinosaurus, an amphibian.
The authors say that they can still explain why this marine fish is fresh water, since the phenomenon of marine life if it is fresh water is earlier.
The study has just been published in the scientific journal Cretaceous Research.
