The article includes the following curious quote from ichthosaur expert 
Ryosuke Motani:

"'This discovery is great, since we never had a turtle or bird discovered from 
ichthyosaurs. But we knew all along that most ichthyosaurs were not obligatory 
eaters,' Motani told Discovery News."

Not obligatory eaters?  What, did they photosynthesize?
