Stenopterygius quadriassicus by EmperorDinobot Stenopterygius quadriassicus by EmperorDinobot
Stenopterygius was an Early to Middle Jurassic Ichthyosaur found mostly in Europe. Thanks to these fossils we know that Ichthyosaurs were viviparous (gave birth to live babies), and like modern cetacea, the tail came out first, and so on as an evolutionary measure to counter the babies drowning (this is so they can swim to the surface, breathe, and come back down into the water)

Comments b4 favorite! I completed this while drunk so...it looks...I don't know if its just me lol. Enjoy.

Those spots on the adult's back are pretty cool...

Very nice. I don't know how the proportions of these are, but the only thing that I notice is the thickness of the juvenile's tail? Maybe it's supposed to be like that though, it just seems a little chunky.
