Shastasaurus not a suction feeder[edit]

I removed references to suction feeding, per this post by Brian Switek: http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/2013/12/13/ichthyosaurs-didnt-slurp-squid-after-all/

Not being a paleontologist I didn't want to add anything and get the specifics wrong but removed the information to avoid providing false/debatable information.

In any case, it should be mentioned that it was once proposed. FunkMonk (talk) 22:19, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

I added the line back to the Description with a link to the new PLoS ONE paper. Huxley75 (talk) 14:41, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
