          I'm just suggesting that there were other possible suspects out
        Techniques are difficult, if not impossible, to ascertain. I have
seen a photo
        of a swordfish that had penetrated the hull a fishing boat with its
        Dan Varner.


           Got it.  I looked at a Tylosaurus skull mount here this past
Saturday and from the shape
        of the snout, this seems feasible.  This specimen must have been an
adult from the size,
        but I didn't get the opportunity to ask any questions about it.
