“[We found] things like plesiosaurs and mosasaurs — a type of marine lizard made famous by the recent film Jurassic World,” said Dr Steve Salisbury from the University of Queensland, who took part in the mission.
“We found a lot of really great fossils,” he said.
“They were all shallow marine rocks, so the majority of things we found lived in the ocean.”
Dr Salisbury and the team also found fossils of birds including early ducks that lived at the end of the Cretaceous period.
The team of 12 scientists from the US, Australia and South Africa travelled to the James Ross Island area to find out more about Antarctica’s dinosaurs.”
