Very cool. It's amazing how long the neck is in proportion to its body.

I, personally, like to equate these guys with the Sauropods. I mean, heck, they're just like pisciverous sauropods with flippers!

Speaking of Peter and Lillian's trip to the AMNH, I wonder how they're doing and if they managed to meet the famed Mark Norrell? That would be cool either way! *sigh* I wish I didn't live in Kentucky at times. :P
