  Fossils
PLESIOSAURUS macrocephalus
Juvenile (cast specimen)
Age: Jurassic
Location: Lyme-Regis, England

This species is distinguished by its larger head and thick neck. The original or real fossil plate was found by Miss Mary Anning in 1830! The original is in the Natural History Museum in London. Very few juvenile plesiorsaurus have ever been found.

  Fossils
Ichthyosaur sp.
Adult and Juvenile

(cast replicas)
Poseidon Shale
Early Jurassic
Holzmaden, Germany

These were marine reptiles that lived in the open seas. They were fast swimmers. The shape of the ichthyosaur is similiar to the unrelated dolphin which is a mammal. Ichthyosaur mostly ate belemnites (squids) and fish. They gave life birth to their young unlike most reptiles that lay eggs.
