The ancient reptile fossil from the Arctic Sea is the oldest ever found in the Southern Hemisphere

A global group of researchers has distinguished the most established fossil of a maritime reptile in the Southern Side of the equator: a nothosaur vertebra tracked down on New Zealand's South Island. a long time back, at the beginning of the dinosaur age, New Zealand lay on the south polar bank of an immense superocean called Panthalassa.

Reptiles originally attacked the oceans after a horrendous mass termination that crushed marine biological systems and made ready for the beginning of the time of dinosaurs almost quite a while back.
