OSLO, Norway — Remains of a bus-sized prehistoric "monster" reptile found on a remote Arctic island may be a new species never before recorded by science, researchers said Tuesday.

Initial excavation of a site on the Svalbard Islands in August yielded the remains, teeth, skull fragments and vertebrae of a reptile estimated to measure nearly 40 feet long, said Joern Harald Hurum of the University of Oslo.

"It seems the monster is a new species," he told The Associated Press.

These remains appear to be the same species as those found on a nearby island last year thought to be a short necked plesiosaur. Length about 30 feet and described as the Tyrannosaurus rex of the oceans. One researcher said that new species of sea reptiles are being found regularly.

Why do you suppose they are finding new specimens and species more regularly lately?
