Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Liopleurodon ferox is the largest reptile to have roamed the sea, ruling the waves 150 million years ago. A complete skeleton has just been unearthed in Mexico, a massive 65 foot long adult, making it the best and most complete specimen of the largest aquatic reptile in history. The Liopleurodon is a member of the plesiosaur family, and this new find will help improve our knowledge about the ancient oceans.
