As far as the surviving Seazoria remains, yes lots of pieces are still present. It appears as though the Seazoria Dragons were frozen alive. So as to answer your first question yes lots of remains have survived. In the Hallettestoneion Heights graveyard located along the ancient sea shore above the cities of Pleasant Vies and North Ogden Utah we describe the Seazoria Dragon examples as being "intact". Above the surface the remains can be a little skattred and distorted, However below the surface the remains are mostly intact. It what I am trying to convey is that basically most of the Seazoria Dragons (8) are mostly intact meaning skulls plus bodies. Yes the bodies are present. The bodies hump up out of the ground and are fully spiked on the top half of the body. When I first discovered the Hallettestoneions back in November 2,003 I spent much time examining and studying Seazoria bodies but the bodies are so large and complex that I made a decision to focus my studies and excavation efforts on the Seazoria skulls.
The skulls are the scientific proof that is irrefutable . When you have a skull with e quell right and left hand half's and a full and complete set of 27 inch teeth underneath that kind of proof becomes imposable to deny The Seazoria teeth are biological structures with exacting biological characteristics. The Seazoria's skull matrix contains on average around 8,000 individual components. This estimate is based on the 5 Seazoria skull that I have hand excavated over the past six years. Also I have watch a number of skull dug up using a very large track hoe while working in commercial excavation along the ancient sea shore. I work in excavation and earth moving and get to see Seazoria Dragon remains on a daily basis, above and below the surface.
As for the dating I have consulted with multiple sourses. Including the Utah department of Natural resources. The Utah Geological survey, the University of Utah, Utah museum of natual history, Collage of Eastern Utah dinosuar museum and Weber State University goesiences department. Individuals consulted were either Paleontologists or geologists. Esitimates were between 525 to 570 million years.
The chairmain of Weber State University Geosciences department offered the best dating information. Dr. Adolf Yonkers explaind the seven different ancient watermaks that are carved into the base of our mountains. Explaining that the highest watermark dated back 540 million years when Utah was the western edge of the Pacic Ocean. No Nevada or California at that time. Additionally we could look out of his 3rd story office and see the ancient watermarks and the Hallettestoneion Heights Seazoria Dragon Graveyards located 10 miles away. The very best preserved Seazoria Dragon examples are located just below the ancient Pacific Ocean high watermark. These Seazoria Examples were underwater for the least amount of time and are in much better condition than Seazoria Dragon example located lower down near the ancient lake bonneville shore line. The Great Salt Lake, todays current water level is about 1,200 below the ancient Pacific Ocean High watermark 540 million years ago.
When you search in the geological timline you can see that there was a huge global caticlism 540 million years ago marking the end of the Precambian era to the cambrian era. So type of cataclisment event occored 540 million years ago casing the Hallettestoneion Seazoria Dragon to swim up to the Hallettestoneion Heights graveyards. This elevated underwater penincila offered the only shallow water area around. Close examination of the Hallettestoneion Seazoria Dragons (remains) shows the Seazorias look like the all swam up to the "bluff" and were all huddled togather laying on their stomacks and chins and were frozen alive. Sediments from the turbulent ocean at the time of the caticlism must have burried the Seazoria Dragons bodies because they have been emtombed since the time of there death and only became exposed due to the accelorated erosion caused by being burried on sloping terrain.
Eirlier this summer we had some geoligist come to our dragon labratory herein Kaysville Utah. Presented for examination were multiple example of Hallettestoneion Seazoria Dragon teeth and identical proggresive replacement teeth. The full size teeth and the progressive replacement teeth were subjected to a high tech chemical analisis. the Teeth are calcium and clearly show a biological profile to their chemical structure.
As far as the naming goes. After speaking to the state paleontoligist this individual explained that the naming allways comes from the discoverer. I invented the name Hallettestoneion Seazorias and after studying prehistoric vertabra land dinosuars I can tell you with out any hesitation that the prehistoric marine reptile that I have been digging up and studdying for the past six years are in fact the prehistoric sea dragons long missing from the historical text book.
