Jobaria is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that was discovered in Niger, northwest Africa. It lived 164 to 161 million years ago in what is known as the Mid Jurassic. It gets its name from a local Taureg myth about a giant beast who lived long ago, whom some still believe to be the fossils remnants of the dinosaur

The Valley of the Whales by Mohammed Ali Moussa. There is another even more ancient Egypt that is known to very few people. The Fayoum area contains some of the best preserved paleontological sites in the world, one of which is Wadi Hitan or the Valley of Whales. A remote valley in the Western Desert of Egypt 150 kilometers southwest of Cairo, the valley is located near the Al-Katrani mountain range, a valuable geological site for its rare vertebrate fossils and mega-fossils.

Vertebrate Fossil Leptauchenia sp.  Upper Brule Formation, White River Badlands, Chadron Nebraska Area  The Oreodonta is an extinct suborder of mammal in Order Artiodactyla, and therefore distantly related to pigs, hogs, camels, hippopotamuses, and the pig-like peccaries. Over 50 species of Oreodonta have been described.

These fossils found in northeastern China show the diversity and small sizes of some of the feathered dinosaurs. Many avian traits evolved in dinosaurs long before birds themselves appeared.

Prognathodon Mosasaur Skeleton A medium to large-sized mosasaur, with the skull length reaching 1.5 meters and the total body length up to around 10 meters; the skull was massive and proportionately large.It had protective bony rings surrounding its eye sockets, indicating it lived in deep water. Its teeth are similar to those of some Triassic placodonts, so it may have lived a similar lifestyle, feeding on shellfish, large fish, and sea turtles

Brazilosaurus is an extinct genus of mesosaur which lived during the early Permian (Artinskian stage) of what is now Brazil. It is known from a skeleton recovered from the Assistencia Member of the Irati Formation (Hanayama Farm, Tatuí, São Paulo). It was named by T. Shikama and H. Ozaki in 1966 and the type species is Brazilosaurus sanpauloensis

Plesiosaur tooth - Plesiosaurs first appeared in the latest Triassic Period, possibly in the Rhaetian stage, about 203 million years ago. They became especially common during the Jurassic Period, thriving until their disappearance due to the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event at the end of the Cretaceous Period, about 66 million years ago. They had a worldwide oceanic distribution
