The AP should be ashamed
The bones of a baby plesiosaur have been recovered from the Antarctic. This is one of the most complete plesiosaur fossils ever recovered. Getting it out of Antarctica in the face of sub-zero temperatures and high winds required a heroic effort of scientists aided by the Argentine Air Force. What does the Associated Press think is the most important thing to tell us about it?
In life, 70 million years ago, the five-foot-long animal would have resembled Nessie, the long-necked creature reported to inhabit Scotland's Loch Ness.

They also point out that it swam just like those cute pengiuns that we all love. I can't wait fore the plush dolls.
