Really wild photo of fossils

Check out this link.  Its an amazing fossil of a marine reptile, Chaohusaurus, giving birth.  Three babies can be seen, including one in the process of being born.  What a story this picture tells; I wonder why the mother died during child birth?  While that is a question that cannot be answered (at least by me); this fossil is an important link in our evolutionary record.  Per the scientists in the article, this fossil demonstrates that live birthing sea creatures probably evolved from land based animals.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
