CGTPL Liopleurodon
Liopleurodon was a very large pliosaur from the Jurassic. It was the largest predator to ever live.

Liopleurodon was a giant marine reptile which was part of a group of reptiles called the pliosaurs. This group was part of the plesiosaur group. This animal possessed all the key features of pliosaurs such as four, powerful flippers, a long, narrow snout and needle-sharp teeth.

Most Liopleurodon are black with a white underbelly and spots, like a modern great white shark. This was probably used as camouflage. However, some are green with a white underbelly and no spots at all.

Liopleurodon was a gigantic predator, with the largest specimens reaching 25 metres in length. Along with its extraordinary length, it weighed 150 tonnes. It used its four powerful flippers to propel its heavy bulk through the water silently.

The skull of Liopleurodon was the typical shape of pliosaur head. It was long and heavy and was attached by a strong albeit short neck. Its jaws contained lots of needle-sharp, interlocking teeth; perfect for killing prey quickly and efficiently. Its skull and jawbones were specially designed to withstand the bite force generated by its jaws. Being the largest predator in the late Jurassic seas, animals like marine crocodilians, giant fish, plesiosaurs, ichthyosaurs and even other pliosaurs were included on Liopleurodon's menu.

Most marine reptiles had to close its nostrils whilst underwater; not Liopleurodon. This animal had evolved a nose that was able to smell underwater without inhaling water. This adaptation allowed Liopleurodon to pick up the scent of blood from miles away and, like modern sharks, would follow the trail until they found the animal they were pursuing. The pliosaur would then accelerate towards its prey and the victim would be almost instantly killed by the attacker.
