Dec. 8, 2006 - Millions of years ago, a young plesiosaur died and sunk to the bottom of what is now the Southern Ocean. Recently, paleontologists found the well-preserved skeleton of this unfortunate juvenile in Antarctica, according to researchers who have been preparing the specimen for public exhibit.
