Good to see the comments section of the article is not devoid of crazy guano. Would hate for a fascinating and significant find such as this to go without its fair shair of crocoduck advocates.

As for the claims of the most alien creature on the planet, and some of the comments in that article that the researcher supposedly said, well thats five sevenths bullshit two sevenths hyperbole.

Theres the abstract, main article will be behind a paywall.
