As sad as dis may sound, I figya’d this blog mite end up like the water dinos its dedicated to… Extinct but still badazz. Yet all the recent activity has maed this rascal reconsider that && keep it goin longa still. Anyway, pictured above is Thalattoarchon Saurophagis n needless 2 say, hes a boss @$$ bitch.
As u all can prolly guess, he is an Ichthyosaur (like da Shonisaurus). He is akshully a relatively new water dinosaur that was found in Nevada in 2010 and formally described in 2013. Unfortunately, the only skeleton of my boi Thalattoarchon is still incomplete and his appearance has been sceintifically guezzed based on other Ichthyosaurs. This rascal actually looks verver similar to Cymbospondylus but a distinct characteristic bout him is dat his head is about twice as big (relative to da bod) and he has some big ol chompers.
Fun factoid: Thalattoarchon Saurophagis in Gr33k means Lizard Eating Sovereign of the Sea. Which aint too surprising given dat he was thought to be one of da FURST marine macropredators that wuz capable of eating prey that was almost da same size as himself. If that aint the hypest thing yu heard all day, then you must lead a pretty goddamn interestin life.
Sovereign of the goddamn sea yo.
