Pregnant Plesiosaur found!
The embryo was distinguishable for many reasons, the bones haven't ossified yet and it's the same species (so, not something the plesiosaur ate). It also clearly shows signs of embryonic development.
Plesiousaurs are a genus of large marine sauropterygian reptiles which lived during the early Jurassic period through until the end of the Cretaceous period (or, about 78 million years ago). They were about 15ft long (3 metres), or roughly the length of a minibus, not including the neck. The bones show that the baby would have been about 6ft long when born.
