Marine dinosaur (Keichousaurus hui) fossil. This fossil dates to the middle Triassic period(between 245 and 228 million years ago). It is thought this small reptile, measuring a maximum of 30 centimetres nose to tail, was found in large numbers in the shallow waters of an intercontinental sea. The large numbers could indicate that it was an important prey species for larger carnivores. K. hui specimens have only been found in China.
