Introduced to the world in 2009, Predator X was hailed as the most fearsome of all prehistoric creatures.

An immense, big-headed marine reptile - said to have been 50ft long with a bite four times more powerful as Tyrannosaurus rex - spawned a host of excited commentary, documentaries and even a B-movie.

Now, four years after the initial discovery of the beast's fossilised remains, Predator X has finally been given a technical description and a name - and it seems the hype overreached the facts.

This is not a "marine reptile" or a "reptile" as fox news so haphazardly describes... it is an AVIAN dinosaur!  

Bird. Not lizard.

Sorry but, for once, fox has it right. Pliosaurs are marine reptiles not dinosaurs. And certainly not avian dinosaurs. They evolved completely separately.

'Good' is not the same as 'nice'.
'No, murder is running your broadsword through someone because he worships a different God to you... Or is that evangelism? I get confused.'
When they discover the centre of the universe, a lot of people are going to be disappointed - They are not it.
I don't object to the concept of a deity but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

Please keep the banter about the evil "FOX News" in the political arena.

Megalodon still holds the record for most powerful bite, even more than T-Rex and Predator X.

The question is, Megalodon or Predator X? Predator X is bigger (or could be) but Megalodon has a more powerful bite.

I'll always remember that video of a T-Rex vs Titanoboa with both sides being show how they would win. So, do Megalodon vs Predator X.

I was just thinking that. I saw a documentary on this same team, and that dig site photo looked like it was from the show. They found all kind of unusual new information during that show, but if it was about this exact find, they didn't know what they had at the time.
