Bus-sized sea monster discovered in Russia

4 posts in this topic

Scientists have identified a "highly unusual" new species of extinct sea-dwelling reptile in Russia.

Similar in appearance to a river dolphin or gharial crocodile, the fish-eating sea beast would have had a long beak-like snout.

Related to the top predators who ruled the ocean during the dinosaur age, its lengthy "rostrum" set it apart from its relatives who had large and powerful toothed jaws.

The picture kind of makes it look like a penguin ancestor.

If they were top predators they must've killed their prey with cuteness.
