BREAKING NEWS – Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England – According to the Natural History Museum in the United Kingdom, ancient marine reptiles called plesiosaurs likely swam like penguins, relying on their front flippers for forward propulsion. “This is the first time plesiosaur locomotion has been simulated with computers, so our study provides exciting new information on how these unusual extinct animals swam,” said study co-author Adam Smith, a curator of natural sciences at Wollaton Hall. “We are convinced that these powerful 11 foot long creatures were extremely fast, based on the irrefutable fact that prehistoric man often roped these reptiles while wearing water skis.”
