    Hello there.

        I was recently browsing a few topics that came across my purview and, amongst them, I located a little snippet that immediately made me think of you guys. I don't know if this has already been brought forward, but I wanted to share it, nevertheless. Speculations seem to suggest that some members of the ichthyosaur family might have dwelled within the water and upon the land! I do hope you enjoy this! :)

    This is interesting, I know for a while it has been a mystery of what the terrestrial ancesters of Ichthyosaurs looked like, though this is something big. Im very surprised that it had a short snout unlike other Ichythosaurs. Although the article said that this might mean it was suction-feeder, I personally think it's an evolutionary leftover from the ichthyosaur ancestor that was fully terrestrial.


    There is no such thing as a pure predator. A meat-eater is eit

    LORD OF THE SPINOSAURS - Now that is a very interesting hypothesis! Indeed, this animal very well could have been a remnant from more ancient times! :)

    This was pretty interesting! I'm not too big on evolution, but a seal-ichthyosaur is pretty cool!

    SCI-FI KING25 - Hahaha! Indeed! I'm certain they'd make excellent companions - a pet with which you can take both pleasant strolls and swims! :)
