Today when you go to any major Paleontologic Museum in the world, you can see a fossil of the Dolphin-like Ichthyosaur. Although Ichthyosaurs and Dolphins have a similar shape and have many common features, they are completely different animals.
Ichthyosaurs are euryapsids, a group of reptiles derived from a diapsid reptile ancestor. Unlike ichthyosaurs, dolphins are derived from a mammalian ancestor and evolved after the ichthyosaurs had died out. Here is my new article about these amazing prehistoric reptiles: The History of Ichthyosaurs Discovery www.paleophilatelie.eu/topics/paleo/vertebrate/ichthyosaur.html This article also tell the story about Ichthyosaurs discoveries. Even thought the first recognized skeleton of Ichthyosaurs discovered in 1811 by Mary Anning and her brother, the oldest skeleton was discovered in Germany in 1749, but was assigned to a fish.
This and many other interesting facts can be found in the article.
