    You know, they didn't have refrigeration back in those days.

    What would you do if you caught one of those things? Sure, you could have a big party, invite all your Cro-Magnon friends and their wolves, but there'd still be a lot of leftovers. For the next several days you'd be having Leedsichthys patties, Leedsichthys casserole, Leedsichthys soup, etc. until you couldn't stand the thought of another bite of Leedsichthys, and were just dying for a Tyrannosaur steak. But, before all that there's the cleaning problem - that scales on that thing must have been the size of dinner plates, and what do you do with all the guts? Think of prehistoric-scale flies, pterodactyls, and other carrion-eaters.

    No wonder its last name was problematicus.

    :m: Peace.

    A question comes to mind........How would anyone catch something like this back then and even if they caught it how would they actually land it or haul it into land. It was probably the other way around. I'll bet this fish ate humans that were swimming in the waters where it sawm.

    If I got one of these 155 million years ago I would invite all my little rat like mammals.
