Physical appearance and biologyEdit
At 7 meters in length, 2.5 tons in weight, a skull as large as an adult human, and 3 meters in height, Liopleurodon was a fairly sized pliosaur. Its teeth alone were 4 inches long and were great for slicing flesh. Liopleurodon propelled itself using four paddle-like fins and its skin was probably smooth, but it reached slow speeds of 6.21mph. Liopleurodon could give birth to live young.
The best advantage Liopleurodon had was its great sense of smell that it applied when hunting. It was able to smell food kilometers away.
Behaviour and traitsEdit
Liopleurodon was most likely the apex predator of Jurassic Europe's seas as it has no known predators. Most likely a solitary hunter, its diet included sharks, giant fish, ichthyosaurs, other plesiosaurs, and even pterosaurs like Dorygnathus. Some believe Liopleurodon and its relatives were ambush predators.
