DINO-A-DAY #94: Ichthyosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Ichthyosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: IK-thee-oh-SAWR-us
ORDER: Ichthyosauria
EXISTED DURING: Early Jurassic
DISCOVERED: England, 1822
FUN FACT: Fossils suggest that Ichthyosaurus delivered its young by vivipary (live birth), as opposed to laying eggs.
