PressTV-Skeleton of new marine reptile discovered in Mexico

Mexico has revealed a well-preserved complete skeleton of a new marine reptile that was discovered in the country’s northeast.

The skeleton is reportedly 93 million years old. The details of tissue mass and scales of the remains have never been previously seen in other fossils.

The fossilized remains of the ancient reptile show its soft skeletal tissue structure, from its neck, flippers, torso and tail. The reptile is estimated to have been 180 centimeters long, with a flipper span of nearly 120 centimeters.

Scientists believe Mexico is a prime stamping ground for dinosaur discoveries. Due to the region’s diverse climatic factors such as erosion unearthing fossils and other dinosaur remains is commonplace in the country’s northern arid areas.
