sharp teeth fish

Yas more Mabel!

This time Monsterfalls AU stuff. I like her as an aquatic monster but instead of a mermaid more as a mercentaurn (that’s the word?), to make her more alike to Dipper.

Also, as I said, i would like her to struggle a little more with her transformation, so when she gets mad, she will have this sharp teeth like a rape fish. Also her song will attract people but to eat them.

(she doesnt like that. Dipper is the first one in the list and the only one who can stop her. Grunkle Stan was the 2nd, and Mabel almost lost her teeth that day)

It’s a bird, It’s a plane, It’s a plesiosaur!

Plesiosaurs, a group related to lizards, lived in the sea. Although plesiosaurs were not dinosaurs, they became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous, 65 million years ago, at the same time as the non-avian dinosaurs. Plesiosaurs had powerful swimming muscles attached to their expanded shoulder and pelvic bones, and they used their flippers to swim. 

This Fossil Friday is Thalassomedon haringtoni, a long-necked plesiosaur with a relatively small head and many sharp teeth for seizing fishes and other marine animals. This long, flexible neck, with as many as 70 vertebrae, probably helped in grasping such rapidly moving prey.
