Caption: Kronosaurus. Artwork of a Kronosaurus marine reptile swimming underwater. This animal was a short-necked member of the Plesiosaur group of carnivorous marine reptiles. It inhabited the seas of the late Cretaceous period, from 100-65 million years ago. It was a large and formidable predator, with a head that measured 2.4 metres long. As well as feeding on fish, it would probably have hunted other plesiosaurs, as well as giant turtles and large ammonites. Plesiosaurs swam like turtles, by flapping their flippers up and down like paddles.
