Scientists have identified Hauffiopteryx Altera as a new species of Ichthyosaurs, a group of tuna-shaped reptiles that inhabited Earth’s seas during the Mesozoic Era.
Like dolphins, ichthyosaurs underwent profound adaptions to aquatic environments, including limbs transformed into flippers, a dorsal fin, and a tail fin.
Scientists retrieved the fossils in the Posidonia Shale, an Early Jurassic geological formation located at the axis of Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.
