    There have been some intriguing reports over the years of sightings at sea that have fit the mososaur motif–most sea serpent reports are the classic head and neck, but every now and then a crocodilian shaped critter makes it on the incident list.

    Mososaurs are some of my favorite aquatics, but I’m not sure I’d want to ever meet one…or to know that there’s still a viable population of them out there–they were very efficient hunters.
