One Freaky-Looking Dinosaur

It’s called the Caulkicephalus trimicrodon, remains of which were discovered three years ago on a beach on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England. The reptile’s name was chosen by University of Portsmouth palaeobiologists in southern England, as Caulkhead is the informal name for natives of the Isle of Wight.

This is an artist’s impression.  It’s kind of a cross between a pelican, a bat, and an alligator.  That’s one seriously fucked-up creature.
