'Monster' fossil found in Jurassic graveyard
"The Norwegian researchers discovered remains of a total of 28 plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs – top marine predators when dinosaurs dominated on land – at a site on the island of Spitsbergen, about 1,300k from the North Pole.

'One of them was this gigantic monster, with vertebrae the size of dinner plates and teeth the size of cucumbers,' Joern Hurum, an assistant professor at the University of Oslo, said on Thursday."
