Caption: Liopleurodon. Artwork of a Liopleurodon swimming, as seen from it's underside. This extinct genus of marine reptile lived around 160-155 million years ago. It belongs to the group of animals known as short-necked plesiosaurs. Liopleurodon may have been the largest aquatic carnivores to have ever lived, reaching lengths of up to 25 metres. Its long jaws contained rows of needle-sharp teeth that enabled it to hunt marine crocodiles, giant fish, ichthyosaurs and other plesiosaurs.
