People found bones.  They thought many giant reptiles came to the spot and died.

Now many think the creatures came to have babies.  They may have come in groups to keep each other safe.

Pray: Thank God for the clues He gives us to learn more about history and ancient reptiles.

These swimmers lived in water. They had paddle-shaped flippers. They could grow to the size of a bus! But their bones are in different rock layers. That means they died years apart. Tiny bones show some were newborns. Maybe this isn’t a graveyard. Maybe it’s a nursery!
