correction: okay - this can't be right
Head length should have been JAW length.
Subject: okay - this can't be right
Some hoo-ha on our Orangeburg PBS station claimed they found a
(assuming it's a pliosaur) Jurrassic sea reptile jaw that estimates
a HEAD length of 16 feet in South America.
They were all ooo'ing and aaaah'ing about this - so obviously not
some icthyosaur jaw, since we've already got one super-size beastie
on record for that line.
I can't imagine why, if this is not an exaggeration, nature would
push for a pliosaur of such size - what were they munching down on,
primordial whale sharks??
Anyone familiar with these finds? What's your view?
I've googled / yahooed / etc. without success on this one.
