Pregnant Fossils Found Under Ping Pong Table

 

Fossils collected in The Northwest Territories 25 years ago were stashed in a box under a ping pong table, only to be rediscovered a few years ago during renovations, and found to be 100 million year-old icthyosaurs, one pregnant with two embryos.

Univ. of Alberta Professor of Paleontology Michael Caldwell said “It was pretty amazing to realize this valuable discovery had sat under a ping pong table for 25 years. But I suppose that after 100 millions of years in the dirt, it's all relative."

The discovery bridges an important gap in the fossil record, succeeding previous finds by 80 million years. The unique specimens were given their own genus and species classification, Maiaspondylus lindoei.
