When we asked Dr. Jørn Hurum, discoverer of Predator X, why the monster he discovered was the greatest ocean predator of all time, we didn't expect him to take the assignment literally. What he sent us was one of the most badass charts we've ever seen. Hurum took Predator X -- which is 15 meters (50 feet) long, has a bite force of 30,000 lbs. per square inch, and two extra fins to help it acelerate when attacking
-- and compared it to the seven most deadly ocean predators he could come up with. Want to know more about the most exciting dinosaur discovery of our time? Check out the History Channel special, "Predator X,"
(You may notice a few Oxford English spellings. Dr. Hurum is Norwegian, and we chose to run his text unaltered.)
