In the deepest part of the ocean, the Mariana Trench, lives a long lost species. A species, which lived during the time of the dinosaurs, was believed to be extinct. There are Fossils on file that were discovered on different parts of the world, some costal and other’s which are believed to be coastal lands at one point in time. All around the world, these fossils were aged from 70-65 million years old.
The Mariana Trench is located in the mid west area of the Pacific Ocean. It reaches a depth of 35,840 feet below sea level. This area was first discovered by British survey ship Challenger II in 1951. Marine biologists believe that the species was somehow able to avoid being discovered.
Whalelongsaurus measures 120 feet long, and it is believed to weight as much, if not more, than a blue whale, which is about 180 metric tons. It has a light shed of green. It has 4 large fins that allow it to reach speeds of around 30 mph. After a year of research, Marine scientisst have learned a great deal about this historic and new species. Whalelongsaurus have a very strong senses in the water that able them to detect movement miles away. They have a thermal heat vision. They eat marine life as well as marine plant life. They also do not need oxygen to breath.
Marine biologists have discovered a total of 5 Whalelongsaurus in the Mariana Trench area. They have also recently discovered another in the arctic area. The Whalelongsaurus is now the largest and oldest living species alive.
