Ichthyosaur fossil proves ancient sea monster roamed the world

A nearly complete fossil of the giant ‘lizard fish’ Ichthyosaur has been unearthed in India. It’s the first time the 150-million-year-old fishlike reptile has been found on the sub continent. It was found among the remains of its prey. It appears to belong to the Ophthalmosauridae family of Ichthyosaurs, closely related to Northern Hemisphere varieties. It likely lived between 152 and 157 million years ago.
