Hi Melody ,

I remember a few years back ,out in the desert of Australia a plesiosaur was found that is one of the best preserved  ,and its fossil bones had actually become opalized !! I'll look into it sometime.

Hi Mark!

Thanks for looking. You'll notice that a lot of these plesiosaurs were found in the Australia/HNew Zealand area, so that are must have been very popular with them.

There was also a fossil of one found in Loch Ness, but that is another story!

Your welcome Melody

Loch ness huh ? Roll Eyes  ,considering some of the subjects on this forum ,I suppose the Loch Ness monster is fair game. Wink

But maybe if fossils of Plesiosurs were discovered around Loch Ness in the past ,that could account for the legend?  ..Just a thought. I'm not really sure if the Loch Ness monster is an ancient or modern myth.
