Hey guys, I am here to report some exciting news courtesy of LiveScience.com. 46 specimens of ichthyosaur have been found below a melting glacier in southern Chile. Ichthyosaurs were a group of large- fast-swimming reptiles that lived during the early Mezsoic Era from about 245 to 90 million years ago. The name of of the species is greek for "fish lizards." The findings were published May 22nd in the journal Geological Society of America Bulletin. The research was conducted by a group led by Wolfgang Stinnesbeick, a paleontologist at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. You can read more about the findings on the LiveScience website at this link.

Wonder why they all died in the same spot?

These are carbonate residues and impressions left by the ichthyosaurs (that's right, I've been reading some geology stuff).

Youre fat, and I'm not sugarcoating it cause you'd probably eat that too.
