Australian palaeontologists unearthed a skull of a giant reptile thought to be 110 million years old and so heavy it had to be lifted out by helicopter, Reuter reports from Perth. Its finder, John Long, said he believed the undamaged skull was either a dinosaur or a marine reptile. It dates from the early Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic era and was found poking out of a block of sandstone near Kalbarri, 370 miles north of Perth.
