The best fighting “Canglong”
Also 200 years ago, Dutch mining workers discovered large animal skulls, which caused a great uproar. This is the skull fossil of Mosasaur.
In 1795, Napoleon launched the famous battle of Maastricht against the Netherlands in order to obtain the skull of Mosasaur. After winning, he personally escorted the fossil to Paris and gave it to the top paleontologist at the time, Veye. Paleontologists and philosophers in Paris started a verbal battle, which was later called the “battle at sea.”
In the 18th century, people generally believed that the earth was only a few thousand years old and that the idea of extinction did not exist. According to Cuvier’s argument, hundreds of millions of years ago, large reptiles roamed the sea and then disappeared without a trace. The skull fossil of Mosasaur is important evidence of Cuvier.
In a warehouse in North Dakota, the paleontologist Cui Bo rescued a large number of mosasaur bones from the basement of the History Museum more than 100 years ago and successfully assembled the entire skeleton of mosasaur. This is the largest mosasaur skeleton in the world, 14 meters long. Cui Bo said: “It’s 1.9 meters from the tip of the nose to the bottom of the jaw, and I don’t have enough gaps between their teeth.”
Bell of South Dakota Max College is an authority on Mossaurus research: “Mosasaur’s tail is a propelling organ, like an eel. Swaying from side to side like swimming, this greatly improves its athletic ability and makes Mosasaur the most powerful ambushman. Its limbs control direction, its forelimbs control left and right, and its hind limbs balance the torso, similar to the function of an airplane. The lower jaw can be used to control the direction. Stretching back and forth, the serrated teeth of the upper jaw are used to tear the flesh inwardly, and the upper and lower jaws move interactively to bring food into the throat. This is the pattern of mosasaur eating.”
On the summer evening of 1934, the British driver Cruzanne was driving in In the dangerous area on the north shore of Nice Lake, when the car drove over the mountain, the car lights illuminate a giant beast and walked in front of him. After that, he claimed to have witnessed a 1.4-meter-high, 8-meter-long hump behemoth with its abdomen dragging the ground. While walking, the head is connected to the body, and the neck is very narrow and short. Is this a ridiculous story, or does Crouchan actually see the behemoth?
Mosasaurus is the ancestor of the Komodo dragon. It is said that Mosasaurus will land and lay eggs, just like a sea turtle, its flippers cannot support the whole body to stand. Although Mosasaur Kongwu is powerful, the young dragon may be small and helpless, so Mosasaur may lay eggs on hidden shores. Suppose Mosasaur were to run to the shore to lay eggs, it might be the “monster” witnessed by the driver Crouchant in 1934.
On a severely cold morning in December 1923, Mary, a 25-year-old British woman, walked along the coast at the beginning of the storm as usual. She ignored the danger of the cliff and beat with a hammer in her hand. This time she made the second major discovery: the complete plesiosaur skeleton. She made a name for it. Tello said: “I think her achievements surpassed her childhood discoveries. This was the first plesiosaur fossil discovered in the scientific community, and it caused a sensation in London at that time.”
The drawing of plesiosaur was sent to Paris, where talents gathered at the time. French experts said it was forged. Finally, it was confirmed that the girls of the working class had defeated the first-class scientists. Mary has won immortal credibility for this, because she confirmed the existence of ancient creeping creatures.
Plesiosaurus is a wonderful long-necked aquatic reptile. Marcy is currently the chief paleontologist at South Dakota Mess College, studying the way of paleontology. He believes: “The forelimbs of a plesiosaur are oar-shaped, very narrow and long, and the forelimbs are suitable for sliding in the water. Just like a penguin. Similarly, they are much slower than penguins, like hidden ambushers, rather than agile predators.”
Another special thing about plesiosaurs is that they eat a lot of rocks. . Ma Xi said that by studying fossils, it was found that there are more than 250 fist-sized smooth stones in the stomach of a plesiosaur. Stone has many functions. One is to act as a counterweight to keep it straight when swimming; the other is to help grind food. Its long neck is also very peculiar. Every move of its head will cause its body to deviate; but its long neck and head feel very sensitive and can accurately detect small prey in the distance without being spotted by the prey. Therefore, there is no fish. The class can escape its unexpected surprise.
Plesiosaurus has no sense of smell, but like a shark, it can detect a very small amount of blood in the water. There is an organ under the nostril that can lock the target, can accurately sense the position of the prey, and sense the speed of the tracked target. The other two organs in the skull help it travel straight: Plesiosaurus is very suitable for the primitive marine environment.
How many ancient monsters are there under the sea today
The most terrifying ancient sea monsters in the legend, have they really reproduced for more than 100 million years and survived today? Perhaps, it is better to keep this mystery, because people always love to dream about what is under the cold seabed.
In 1912, a German ship named Augusta Victoria saw an entire giant eel off the coast of England. Captain Mark described it as about 20 feet long and 18 feet thick. In 1947, a luxury cruise ship Louis once sailed over a brown eel-like monster about 60 feet long. Among the reports on this sea monster, Steve, an authoritative hidden zoologist, finally added the account of the Mediterranean tourists in 1958. It is said that they were fishing with a spear and a creature that resembled a giant moray came face to face with them, scaring them almost fleeing the sea.
Any discussion about giant eels will inevitably mention a 6-foot-long juvenile eel, which was a specimen captured by the Newtonian Scientific Expedition Ship in 1930. An elver under normal conditions is only 3 inches long. In the 40 years since Newtonnet obtained this specimen, people have reclassified it: it belongs to a deep-sea fish called noticanthiforms that resembles an eel. In the process of deformation from infancy to adulthood, the size of this fish will not change much.
How many secrets are hidden in the depths of the ocean? A book edited by Harvard University paleontologist Andy Daniel and Cambridge University marine biologist Bob Broughton contains 358 significant scientific reports, at least a dozen of which are related to the one who had been in Valha Pull the monster that appeared near the boat. However, only Valhalla reported the most detailed. These hundreds of reports are different, and the objects described by witnesses are not necessarily of the same kind. For the doubters, this is the proof of deception and misrepresentation. But for Daniel, this just means that several kinds of monsters have appeared in the sea. According to the book, there should be nine kinds of monsters.
When people think of a large group of monsters roaming freely in the seven oceans of the world, the unacceptable psychology is understandable, but there is absolutely no need for people to be aggrieved by one or two unknown animals living in the depths of the ocean. No one had ever witnessed a giant shark before, and it was not until 1976 that people had the privilege of capturing the first such animal. The existence of the Peruvian bird’s beaked whale was not confirmed by science until 1976, and it was not officially recorded in the archives until 2002. Therefore, no one can confidently claim that there are no more secrets in the depths of the ocean.
This sounds unconvincing, and it is. Unless we have found the corpse, or at least have related close-up photos, Broughton’s “giant ocean monster” will continue to hinder scientists from making the final classification.
