i only see the ads which annoy me in ways not previously thought possible. and that sounds like an urban legend, surely?

AM - Ancient snake fossil provides revelations about climate

Quote:
JASON HEAD: We believe the snake was fully aquatic because of the environment that it was found in and plus its huge body size. Now the only other fossils that we find at this time from that locality, from the mine, are the fossils of giant, 2m-long aquatic turtles and a variety of small, 2 to 3m-long primitive crocodilians.

Swallowing a two-metre long turtle whole would be a bit of a chore so we infer that it was most likely that this animal was feeding on the primitive crocodiles.
um... holy shit?


Another link with a drawing and all.

Yep, I saw that.

One of my lecturer's at uni, who is a renowned snake expert, was out collecting some specimens during the wet season in the NT and accidently ended up putting his hand down the throat of a croc... Said he has never been so careful in his life
