1 June 2019
This female ichthyosaurus has just arrived and is unique because she carries two offspring that are clearly visible in her lower abdomen, making her a symbol of femininity and motherhood. Ichthyosaurus was an ancient sea monster that ruled the oceans about 251 million years ago, about 20 million years before dinosaurs came into existence. Icthyosaurus means "Fish Lizards" in Greek. They existed for 100 million years. They were at the top of the marine food chain.
