Nevada: American scientists have discovered fossils of a giant sea creature in the mountains of Nevada that are about 240 million years old. Its skull is more than six feet long, on the basis of which experts estimate that this sea creature must have been at least 56 feet long.
This ancient and extinct animal belongs to the ‘Ichthyosaur’ tribe of marine animals which is also called ‘marine dinosaur’. So far, however, very few fossils have been found, which, though 250 million years old, are much smaller in size.
Nine dryafth akthyusar, called the smbuspundayls yngurm ‘( Cymbospondylus youngorum ) has been named, is more ancient than the size of the big dinosaurs.
The earliest fossils of giant dinosaurs are 215 million years old, but this octopus is 25 million years older than them.
The Ingorum fossils were discovered in 2011 and consisted largely of the entire skull, as well as the imperfect bones of the shoulders and spine.
They were discovered in a vast rock excavation in Mount Augusta, Nevada, which is famous for its fossils.
After a long period of careful research and analysis, experts have finally been able to find out that the ‘Ingorum’ evolved from a land animal but it was very different from the dinosaurs.
It is 247 million years old to 237 million years old and would have been about 56 feet long. Never before has such an ancient animal with such a large size been discovered.
From the time it is related, dinosaurs were also very small in that period, which later on, gained more size.
Its long snout-like skull and the remnants of fine teeth in it show that it used to hunt small aquatic animals while swimming in the sea.
However, the nostrils on his skull are also very clear, indicating that he was not a real aquatic animal like a fish, but after a short time came to the surface of the ocean and breathed in the air and dived back into the depths. Used to go The Ingorum must have been about the size of a modern-day giant sperm whale.
This discovery will help us to learn more about the evolution of giant animals and to refine previous ideas.
