Sometimes Sea Monsters Are Real

Add another tremendously gargantuan fossil lizard to your list. “The Monster”, which unfortunately was a predator, measured 50 feet putting it in contention for the largest Pliosuar. Jorn Hurum led the excavation of the monster last summer last summer on Norway’s Arctic island of Spitsbergen. Pliosuars, unfortunately not magical, were the dominant marine predators during the Jurassic.

    Sorry. Kudos to the people who do real science and stuff. =)
