These are not dinosaurs but marine reptiles. But warm blooded dinosaurs have been delayed for many many years

Don;t think you can get DNA from fossils, however well preserved in rock the soft material might be.

And I thought I should add the "preserved in rock" bit before someone gets the wrong idea on what's actually been preserved :D     I still remember what happened when they found fossilised soft matter from a T-Rex a few years back ....

Well the absolutely awesome part about this is that it can help produce more accurate reconstructions of ichtyosaurs.

Controversially, researchers also claim that the remains still have vestiges of their original proteins.
