Yeah, I recently ordered this book for my work on basilosaurid archaeocetes and
their postulated links to modern 'sea serpents' (there is no case, BTW). I'm
pals with Shuker and, while he knows his crypto, his palaeontology is bang out
of date. A pal of Ben Roesch's has just said much the same.
Yikes! Late for a lecture...
