First Long-Necked Plesiosaur Skull from Montana

Bookmark and Share

A fossil-hunting trip to celebrate a sons homecoming resulted in the recent discovery of an ancient sea monster in central Montana.

Believed to be approximately 70 million years old, its skull and lower jaw represent the first complete skull of a long-necked plesiosaur found in Montana, according to Montana State University experts.

The skull is said to be one of the best specimens of its kind in North America.

Its a very important specimen, MSU paleontologist Jack Horner said at the Museum of the Rockies where the fossil rests in boxes. We have been looking for it for a long, long time.
