This week on Fossil Friday, I bring you a fossil that you can really sink your teeth into! Or maybe this animal would have sunk its teeth into you!
This air-breathing marine reptile dates back to the Jurassic and was found in what is now the Sahara Desert. Although they are considered to be a distant relative of the Komodo Dragon, researchers now think they are even more closely related to snakes.
During my research on this animal, I found this incredibly thrilling, totally non-informative video from the Discovery Channel about this animal on a "rampage"! I'll post it next week when I reveal the answer!
Can you identify this week's fossil?
