Mesozoic sea life. Artwork representing life in the Lias Sea in the Mesozoic era (245-65 million years ago). The Lias Sea existed off what is now north-western Europe. An ichthyosaur is seen attacking a long-necked plesiosaur at centre right. Above them, in the air, are pterosaurs. A crocodile-like animal is standing on the land at upper left, while ammonites are swimming at upper right. This image was taken from "Ancient Dorsetshire", a watercolour by H. T. de la Beche from around 1831.
