Ichthyosaurs roamed the world

In 2019 a nearly complete fossil of the giant ‘lizard fish’ Ichthyosaur was unearthed in India. It’s the first time the 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 lived between 152 and 157 million years ago.
