Re: Giant Mexican Pliosaur



The link from the original Der Spiegel story (with a picture of the
site) is here:

According to the original story, it doesn't even look like they've
even gotten it back to the museum yet - the crates won't arrive in
Germany until next week.  The museum's web site (in German only) is
http://naturkundemuseum-karlsruhe.de/

Can anyone shed some light on this BBC story?

Supposedly a fairly complete (20 m) Liopleurodon ferox has been found
NE Mexico and is being prepared in Germany? I'm surprised to hear of
Jurassic age marine deposits in that part of Mexico.... which
apparently included "smaller aquatic reptiles known as ichthyosaurs,
which it may have snacked on."

Really strange!
