I have still been receiving a lot of interest in the plesiosaur we recovered early last year and I did promise some more detail for those of you who have asked for it. So what follows is a description of the right forelimb in its entirety. That will be it for a while until preparation of the specimen restarts which may be later this year but is more likely to be early 2013. So enjoy for now!
