Closing in on a 13 foot snack.
Pronounced (LIE-oh-PLOOR-oh-don) Liopleurodon (meaning "smooth-sided tooth") was the
biggest plesiosaur, up to 39-49 feet (12-15 m). It had a long body with a large head, a short neck,
powerful jaws and teeth, and four long, wide, strong flippers. The skull was 10 feet (3 m) long.
Fossils were found in England, France, Germany, and eastern Europe. It lived during the late
Jurassic period. Liopleurodon was not a dinosaur, but another type of extinct reptile. Liopleurodon
was named by French paleontologist H.E. Sauvage in 1873. L. ferox (Martill, 1991) is the
biggest-known species of Liopleurodon.
