long-necked sea monster

While perusing Google news I found this delightfully entertaining news article. Instead of politics, oil prices and Britney Spears’ marriage, we need to talk more about long-necked sea monsters.

A long-necked sea reptile that lived millions of years ago in what is now China may have used its stiff neck to sneak up on unsuspecting prey and suck them in, scientists said on Friday.

Dubbed Dinocephalosaurus orientalis or “terrible-headed lizard from the Orient,” the monster had a neck 5.5 feet long, topped by a tiny head. At the other end was its big round body.
