    First let me say, I love your writing. I’m waiting for the next “Kronos Rising” to hit the book shelves.
    I think your theory is spot on. I don’t doubt that it’s very possible that there are living Cretaceous Creatures swimming our oceans.
    Thank you for the interest you have and for sharing your findings. I find it most interesting.

    depending on migration patterns, Orca can be frequently sighted near the coastline of Australia. I don’t mean to burst bubbles (pun intended) but salt water crocodile is your culprit…

      Hi Andrew. We considered salties, and it’s not impossible, except that the reptile responsible had a head 3′ across at the widest point – a width, alone, that was as long or longer than the longest extant croc ever. Its skull would’ve had to have been somewhere around 8 feet in length, which would require a croc at least 50′ long. A peer and I just did a comparison of the bite marks to Orca bites on an adult humpback, visually compared in terms of size, and the difference is astonishing. Whatever attacked that Orca was enormous and, as it happened in Norway waters, cold-water tolerant as well. Best wishes and Merry Christmas. -Max
