The Sea Dragon fossil is around 10 metres long and weighs about a tonne, making it the largest and most complete skeleton of its kind discovered in the United Kingdom to date. It may also be the first ichthyosaur of its species (Temnodontosaurus trigonodon) to be discovered in the United Kingdom.
A team of skilled palaeontologists from throughout the United Kingdom uncovered the gigantic skeleton's remains in August and September of last year.
