"This animal, armed as it is with the hooks and the beak that it has, not only is colossal in size but is going to be a phenomenal predator and something you are not going to want to meet in the water."

wow, i dont know what to say to that. i wish the discovery channel would just spend a lot more money and get pictures of this thing in the ocean. if they stayed down there for about a year, you would have to see one of them. anyway, great article!
