Museum of Tropical Queensland palaeontologist Dr Espen Knutsen says the discovery of a fully intact Elasmosaurus fossil will help us “understand” how dinosaurs lived across central Queensland.
“Most of what is now central inland Queensland and northern New South Wales was inundated by an inland sea,” Dr Knutsen told Sky News Australia.
“We find fossils of fish and squid, and other reptiles, and also this Plesiosaur from there, so we know what sort of environment they were living in.”
The earth is nowhere near as old as you say it is, neither is this dinosaur, read the Bible it'll tell you how old the earth is. Stop with the carbon dating lies.
But remember people, some Christians think the earth is only 6000 years old, despite the overwhelming evidence that it's MUCH MUCH MUCH older than that.
Nothing much nicer than a bunch of happy paleontologists stretched out by a fossil.
You mean a BABY PLESIOSAUR???
That's not a dinosaur. Marine reptiles were no more closely related to dinosaurs than lizards.
this guy is absolutely full of bull shit…
You mean it didn't turn into oil? Gee, makes me wonder why we call oil fossil fuels? Perhaps oil is a natural resource, much like water. ….something to consider.
100 million years ago sounds like a number pulled out of a hat.
100 million years? If you believe that, you probably also believe COVID was a pandemic.
How does something that is floating and decomposing fossilize? Wouldnt it decompose completely and the bones would scatter? Had to be covered in mud very quickly to fossilize like this
It's the flood cause the find fish fossil around mountains
Based on the fact that it lived in Australia I assume it had a pouch.
It's fully intact like a car stripped of its parts in the Bronx.
There's no way to accurately judge a fossils age beyond 40–50,000 years.
Amazing fossil. Awesome
Also interesting accent..being in Canada I don’t think I’ve ever heard an accent that’s a mix of Norwegian and Kiwi.
Nice fossil, dates are imaginary though
100 million years, bahhhaaaaa!
But … oh my god!… you mean there were animals on earth million years before Jesus?..
Those paleontologists are living my dream. I wish I made different choices
What? 100 million years old? Impossible… the world is only 6,000 years old. Geez…
Dinosaurs are only 6000 years old. Follow the science.
100 million years huh? Almost seems ridiculous to assume so much.
That thing’s teeth
More proof of Noah's flood and the Bible is true!
It was only a few thousand years ago
prob 12K years ago
This stuff is not millions of years old, that is what they sell people because they want to deny the flood during noahs day happened. All creatures died that couldn't survive in water for long time. Except those that were on the ark. Reptiles would have not been on that list. There plenty of proof that dinosaurs were here before that they actually walked up right until the curse that God put an all serpents. They would have survived the flood. The flood would have covered their bodies over when the silt settled from rushing rain fall covering the earth. Fire will be the next to come for the rest of us . The earth will burn with fervent heat.
It is a marine reptile so cool I have that model he was holding the palaeontologist
How did you know that it is 100 million years old? The geologic column? Carbon dating?
Neither of these are accurate.
All body tissue would have decomposed during that period leaving a skeleton.
This is not a skeleton.
How about 4300 years ago in a world wide flood ?.
I LIVE THIS STUFF. AWESOME
Sorry but the Earth is not millions of years old. YouTube–> IS GENESIS HISTORY? (full film) for real scientific evidence
