Paleontology is the scientific study of fossil remains of plants and animals. Its main task is to study and reconstruct on the basis of the found remains the habitus, biological features, methods of nutrition and reproduction of extinct animals, as well as to restore the course of their biological evolution.
Fossils of a large variety of theroid reptiles of different eras of the Earth geological history have been found on the territory of modern-day Russia and characterized.
