A recent article from National Geographic introduces the skull of an ancient, giant “sea monster.” This creature, a pliosaur, was alive about 155 million years ago and had a jaw strong enough to snap a car in half, according to the U.K.’s Dorset County Museum. The skull is 7.9 feet long with a short neck and razor-sharp teeth. For more information, here’s the article about this newly revealed creature.
