Description

 This impeccably preserved fossil is a prehistoric marine reptile, monstrously large Ichthyosaur. Temnodontosaurus was among the most massive of the ichthyosaurs, its body size is huge approximately 12 meters long. In addition, this genus had a pair of huge eye with diameter around 20CM  – likely the largest of any animal to have ever existed!

Global warming in the late Cretaceous changed the marine ecosystem and may lead to its extinction.
