EKATERINBURG, September 14th. / Corr. ITAR-TASS Vitaly Khalevin. The remains of a mesozavr, about 150 million years old, were found in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District by members of the Wild North fishing club during a river rafting. As reported today correspondent. ITAR-TASS club chairman Yevgeny Svitov, now with representatives of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (UroRAN), the question of removing the remains from the water.
He noted that the fossil was found during the rafting on the Yamal river Ruta-U. “The boat of Oleg Yushkov’s member of our group hit something. It was not very deep, and he could see a stone that was very similar to the head of a prehistoric animal. He photographed the find and showed the photos to us,” Svitov said. “We were skeptical at first to these pictures. Well, what mezosaurs can be on Yamal! However, Yushkov sent pictures to Moscow scientists, who confirmed that this is a fossil of a mesozavr,whose approximate age is about 150 million years. However, to accurately determine the age of the remains, you need to conduct research. Without special permission, we can not pick up the find. We hope we get it before the river is covered with ice. "
Mesozavry - an extinct genus of anapsid reptiles of the early Permian period from South Africa, Argentina and Antarctica. They are of great scientific interest in that it is the oldest known reptile, which already at a new level of organization began to master the aquatic environment. Probably, at the beginning of the Permian period, the territories of the southern continents were very dry, there was little food on land, so the descendants of amphibians switched to aquatic life.
