It appears that the DML issue I was having earlier today is resolved. Thanks to people who confirmed receipt of messages. My email kept getting bounced with a message about a server error. It must have been something local.

The great ichthyosaurus of Mount Seceda

The ichthyosaurus Cymbospondylus, half fish, half lizard, was an impressive animal. Thanks to virtual reality from 2021 onwards it can be experienced first-hand in the GherdÃina Museum in Ortisei. A video of the project made by the young paleontologist Nicola Castelnuovo shows how enormous this marine animal was that dominated the Tethys Ocean 240 million years ago.
