A Papua New Guinea newspaper has reported a second sighting of a three metre high dinosaur.

In March this year, the first sighting of the creature was reported from Tinganavudu, near Kokopo Town in East New Britain.

The Kokopo Mayor, had led a team of armed policemen, youths and reporters in a vain effort to find the beast.

Yesterday, the paper reports, there were rumours of a fresh sighting at Warangoi

The paper says locals describe the dinosaur as having the head of a dog, a tail like a crocodile and being about the size of a 200-litre water tank.

It's not known if there will be a renewed search mounted for the elusive animal.
