Extinction and survivalEdit

Some people believe Titansaurus has been extinct since the Jurassic Period, but that claim has yet to be proved.

There have been several tales from the Viking Age and later of sea- or water monsters that can walk on land and then get down under water. Many of these creatures are believed to be plesiosaurs and pliosaurs, but some of them could well be surviving sauropods like the titanosaurids.
