Any chance it could be New Guinea flatworm? Hope not!

My article (with @MarkWitton) 'Neck biomechanics indicate that giant Transylvanian azhdarchid #pterosaurs were short-necked arch predators' was one of the top 5 most viewed #Paleontology and #Zoology articles published in @thePeerJ journal in 2017!

@DinoBryno @Himmapaan And don't forget the @alfmuseum Parasaurolophus!

@Toastcat4618 Ha! Actually, the latest research on this via @thePeerJ shows that Brontosaurus is probably still a valid name! :)

New Gaitsym paper. Incorporating limb stresses reduces speed estimates in T.rex @wisellers @PaleoStu @DrPhilManning

@NHM_London ...and plenty to choose from in this great round-up of "ocean giants" by @DrCraigMc & co, ofc :) -
