World’s first rhino IVF pregnancy could save species that has only 2 living animals remaining


Flying reptile fossils dating back 200 million years have been unearthed in Somerset’s Mendip Hills.
These flying animals resembled lizards and were small enough to fit in the palm of a hand, yet they are thought to be near progenitors of crocodilians and dinosaurs.
Mike Cawthorne, a master’s student at the University of Bristol, discovered the fossil at a limestone quarry in Southwest England.
The existence of these species in the limestone indicates that they either fell or had their bones washed into caverns and fractures throughout time.
“All the beasts were small. I had hoped to find some dinosaur bones, or even their isolated teeth, but in fact I found everything else but dinosaurs,” said Cawthorne.
