    Awesome stuff!

    I love how the human is pictured right in front of the creatures open mouth.
    You know they did that on purpose. :lolol

    There is a two creatures that have Gojira/Godzilla has a name or nickname. one is a relative to carnosaur or some meat eating dinosaur. and the other is a earlier prototype to modern crocodilians and has the nickname Godzilla because is was massive. Anyways this new fossil is cool and man this creature is a real monster, hope it gets a name soon.

    That thing is amazing. Some of the creatures of the past were so fascinating... and scary.

    Cool!

    With the nagging exception that this is a 150-million-year-old fossil, rather than a purported live specimen.... :p 

    Also:
    Why is it always produce?! "We excised a grapefruit-sized tumor from his abdomen," etc., etc. It's not like fruits and veggies don't come in various sizes. You'd think at least National Geographic would use real measurements.

    Yeah, as much as I love the ocean, it's kind of scary that we don't know everything that's in it. There could be some freaky stuff going on.

    what if these creatures still exist...but hibernate like bears...only they hibernate for like thousands or millions of years...so, during the dinosaur age, they ate up, then took a nap....sooner or later they should wake up and be like "WTF, mate...where's all the food at?" then start attacking boats and whales and giant turtles...

    That's why I really really hate the ocean. I don't like to think about what I can't see down in the deep deep water.

    Mr. Cloverfield was from space... oh that cutie....

    loved the movie... the monster still haunts me...

    anyway, this is so cool. I love hearing about new old species... and this thing is aptly named...

    wish one of these things were still around to teach those damned goody goody whales a lesson...

    what?! They so have it coming! You know it, I know it, and best of all THEY know it.
