"This is an amazing discovery," Braddy said.
"We have known for some time that the fossil record yields monster millipedes, supersized scorpions, colossal cockroaches, and jumbo dragonflies," he added. "But we never realized, until now, just how big some of these ancient creepy-crawlies were."
Ummmm... what about Pterygotus? Hasn't it been known for years that eurypterids got really, really frickin' huge? There was one in Walking With Monsters, fer chrissakes. Or is that extra estimated 0.2 meters really REALLY shocking? "Never realized until now"? Huh??
Eh, science news for the general public. Gotta love it. ;)
