Scientists have discovered the remains of a ‘monster’ on an island off the coast of Norway earlier this week. The remains belong to a dinosaur Pliosaur which is a type of plesiosaur with a short neck and massive skull. The remains are the first full skeleton to ever be found of the dinosaur and shows that it had vertebrae the size of dinner plates and the skull that has been found is one of the biggest ever found. The Pliosaur was alive during the Jurassic period, 150 million years ago. It was a giant (33 feet long) ocean bound dinosaur that swam with two flipped and preyed on smaller ocean bound dinosaurs.
