Elasmosaurs Ate Squid

I know it sounds really weird, but I always found something about Elasmosaurs a bit unnerving; compared to plesiosaurs. I think it was because their necks were a lot longer, plus all the pictures in old books showed them as really nasty-looking pieces of work, compared to more "placis-looking" plesios. hmmm

Thanks for the article link, Snafflehound, interesting stuff. Some plesiosaurs also ate ancient squid; have a look at this old thread for images of beaks of vampyromorph beaks in the rib cage of a Cretaceous plesiosaur.
