Kaiwhekea Katiki-saurus

A new species of dinosaur has been discovered on a North Otago beach. The 70 million year old fossil is believed to be a type of plesiosaur – a giant, swimming reptile resembling “a snake threaded through the body of a turtle.” The newly discovered version has been named Kaiwhekea Kaitiki by Otago University’s Ewan Fordyce and Arthur Cruickshank from Leicester Museum.
