Title Complete Pregnant Ichthyosaur Among Incredibly Well-Preserved Fossils Revealed By Retreating Glacier Media name/outlet IFL Science Media type Web Country/Territory United States Date 12/05/22 Description Dr Dean Lomax – who readers may remember from the Rutland ichthyosaur which he hailed "one of the greatest finds in British palaeontological history" – was also along for the ride as a fellow paleontologist and "Visiting Scientist" affiliated with The University of Manchester. Forming part of the collaborative team behind the string of discoveries, he himself uncovered a few of the treasures including a juvenile ichthyosaur’s skull which is thought to be the best-preserved specimen of its kind found to date.
“The considerable number of ichthyosaurs found in the area, including complete skeletons of adults, juveniles, and newborns provides a unique window into the past,” he said. “The international collaboration helps to share this exceptional ichthyosaur graveyard with the world and, to a large extent, to promote science.”
