The bones of a gigantic sea monster that lived millions of years ago and that is nearly 100 feet in length and must have weighed 5 to 10 tons has been found along the Ouachita River on a farm about 50 miles south of here, several hundred miles from any ocean. What is it? How did it get here? And, are there more of them?
Judge Henry Bry, wealthy plantation owner and one of the founders of the Monroe settlement, who moved to the Ouachita River Valley soon after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, rescued these bones from a local farmer, last spring.
