From Pipes To A New Plesiosaur Discovey

Recommended Posts


A new kind of plesiosaur was discovered in Villa de Leyva, Colombia this morning after the mayor of the town ordered for an archaeological expedition to clear the way for some pipes. This discovery was made by the "National Univerity" of Colombia and will be kept in their own collection for furthering studying the new fossil and soon will release more info. It is known that it's a juvenile, with a "short neck and large head" and again they mention that it's not like the other specimens found in the area.
