FOOTNOTES:
Keichousaurus was a late-Triassic marine reptile. It was a member of the Pleurosaur family, which became extinct 250 million years ago during the Triassic-Jurassic extinction event. They were specialised fish eaters, and were highly unusual amongst marine reptiles in that they gave birth to live young rather than laying eggs.
