80-Million-Year-Old Aquatic Reptile Fossils Discovered in Saudi Arabia

The Red Sea Development Company announced recently a collaboration with the Saudi Geological Survey on a project that includes the Red Sea coast and is considered one of the largest surveys in Saudi Arabia.

After the first ten days of excavation, the authority discovered the bones of an 80-million-year-old marine reptile.

Life millions of years ago

According to John Pagano, CEO of the Red Sea Development Company, the spirit of adventure has always been linked to the essence of discovery.

He also mentioned that the destination is already home to Saudi Arabia’s first underwater archaeological excavation site.

He also revealed that the discovery on land was made earlier beneath the water and that it was made possible by geological evidence and fossils from millions of years ago.

He explained that the detection on land was earlier underwater, and came as a result of geological evidence and fossils that took place millions of years ago.

This is a clear indication that life has been in this area since that time, according to him.

The importance of “paleontology”

It is noteworthy that the Red Sea Development Company will continue to work with the Saudi Geological Survey to identify areas of unique geological importance.

This discovery will add to the tourism experiences offered by the sustainable Red Sea destination in discovering the rich natural history of the Arabian Peninsula.
