Evidence for a Triassic Kraken: Unusual arrangement of bones at Ichthyosaur State Park in Nevada
21st century science & technology 01/2012; 24(4):55.
An unusual arrangement of ichthyosaur bones in central Nevada has perplexed paleontologists for decades. Originally thought to be a site of mass stranding in shallow water, more recent research results indicate that it represents a deep-water site. This paper reviews the geological and statistical evidence favoring the Triassic Kraken hypothesis, namely, the concept that the ichthyosaurs were dragged to their death by an ancient cephalopod of unusual size.
