A Plesiosaur walk on the beach

Can you imagine walking along a beach, looking down and seeing a plesiosaur?

Sea reptile fossil found on beach

Nick Collard discovered the bones of the plesiosaur – a 1.5 metre-long sea creature which lived 188 million years ago – on the beach at Bridgwater Bay.

That must have been such a rush. I know that when I found a dinosaur footprint one time it was quite a feeling. This one must have been amazing.

I wish there had been a better photo, that’s all….

    I was taking a ramble through Bristol Uni’s
    report paper on BB roll-outs and also our lovely little program “courseGenie” – well thats the commercial bit done with.

    The link was from someones list:
    “People I Would like to meet”

    Michelle was there!

    Interesting article – I once found a pelvic bone
    from an ichthyosaur on the covered beach section
    at Lyme Regis – a holiday spent digging.
    I wish it had been this :
    http://www.charmouthfossils.co.uk/ Charmouth is the next small town along the bay.

    Anyhow, mostly only have time for digging up courseGenie interest nowadays!

    Best Wishes Mike.
