The most fearsome sea monster the world has ever seen has been found buried in the Arctic. Dubbed "Predator X", the massive pliosaur was fifty feet long and weighed 45 tons. It had massive jaws with a bite force of 33,000 pounds - ten times the force of any animal alive today, including the Great White Shark. Every tooth in its massive jaw was a foot long and Predator X clamped its victims with four times the force of T-Rex. Predator X, which patrolled the oceans 147 millions years ago, was found buried in the remote Arctic near Svalbard by a team of scientists led by Dr Jorn Hurum of the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo. They found another headline-making pliosaur - dubbed The Monster - two years ago and they were just leaving when when they spotted some more bones. They marked the spot with a GPS reading and returned a year later to find the head of an even bigger sea giant - Predator X. After a two week dig they found the skull of the buried in the frozen ground. Its size and body and hunting skills all point to it being the most dangerous predator ever to patrol the world's oceans. The bone linking its skull to its back is six inches in diameter making its skull twice the size of a T-Rex dinosaur. The team also found 20,000 bone fragments which are being glued together to reconstruct the monster at the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo. Predator X had four flippers to propel its massive body through the water. Scientists used a flippered robot and did tests in a wind tunnel to see how it swam, calculating it would only need two flippers. But they believe it used two flippers for cruising but all four when it wanted to surge fast through the water to pounce on its prey making it the deadliest hunter. Another team used an industrial scanner to analyse its brain. It was found to have a long thin brain similar to a Great White shark. The find has been dubbed the most significant Jurassic discovery in the Arctic. Large pliosaurs were big and powerful enough to pick up a small car in its jaws and bite it in half. The Arctic island chain of Scvalbard is known as a "treasure trove" of Jurassic creatures with at least 40 species already discovered. Pliosaurs were a short-necked form of plesiosaur, a group of extinct reptiles that lived in the world's oceans during the age of the dinosaurs. Around 150 million years ago Svalbard wasn't so close to the North Pole and had a warmer climate.

I heard someone say that Fall Out Boy had amazing guitarwork. But, it was a 13 year old girl, so it didn't matter.

Every time the subject comes up i think about how much stuff is out there that no one's ever discovered before. What if one of those are still swimming about?

I was expecting something about another Predator movie. My bad.

Still, a cool find for those scientists. The article came across as poorly written though.

I have to agree with you on that. It seems like they are over exaggerating on some bits. That doesn't change the fact that it's cool as hell though
