Scientists in Argentina have discovered the fossil skull of an enormous, crocodile-like sea monster. Nicknamed "Godzilla," the creature was 12 to 15 feet long, with an enormous head, serrated teeth, flippers and a fishlike tail. It swam in a deep, tropical bay some 135 million years ago.
This is the first time a complete skull of Dakosaurus andiniensis has been found, It gives scinetists new information on South American dakosaurs evolved differently from their relatives in Europe. It will be featured on the cover of the December issue of National Geographic magazine.
