• 4th November 2009 - A Liopleurodon skull is discovered in the cliffs of Dorset, UK. Paleontologists think there may be a full skeleton (A paleontologist's DREAM!) buried in the cliff, but it may be 100+ years before the rest of the cliff is eroded away enough for the skeleton to be extracted safely. Well, at least we won't be waiting long.
