Answer Monday!

Last week on Fossil Friday, I asked you to identify a little swimming reptile. What was it? Where was it from? When was it from?  So many questions!  And there were so many answers!  Mesosaurus? Plesiosaurus? Sloth?

Nope. It was the tiny Keichousaurus!  (No, I didn't just sneeze.) Keichousaurus was the genus of an aquatic reptile. This specimen was found in China and dates back to the Triassic.

Kudos to Glenn F for getting it right! As the first winner of 2014, you win bragging rights for the year!  Stay tuned for the next Fossil Friday!
