Re: Ichthyosaurus fossilised in mid-birth ??

Probably, each being unaware of the other, they
pounced upon an ancestor of that


Anyway... expulsion by bloating of the carcass is the standard explanation for the several fossil ichthyosaur "births", and what looks like a good summary of the "rainstorms, not sandstorms" hypothesis can be found here http://www.dinosauria.com/jdp/fossil/sandslide.html.

I wouldn't expect an earthquake in Mongolia in the Late Cretaceous.
