Liopleurodon was a large carnivorous marine reptile (more than 20 feet in length) that lived during the Middle Jurassic Period (160-155 million years ago) in a shallow sea that once covered what is now Europe. Unlike the more familiar plesiosaurs like Elasmosaurus, which had small heads and a long neck, Liopleurodon had a huge head and short neck.

  • Scientific Name: Liopleurodon, meaning ‘smooth-sided tooth’. Many large reptiles had distinct ridges or serrations on their teeth, but Liopleurodon was distinct in totally lacking these features.
  • Characteristics: Liopleurodon belonged to a special branch of plesiosaurs called ‘pliosaurs’.
  • Size and Color: This model is 7 inches long and 4 inches wide. Its upper side is dark to make it harder for prey swimming above to distinguish it from the deep dark water, and lighter on its underside to camouflage it against the lighter sky above.
  • The Liopleurodon is part of the Wild Safari® Prehistoric World collection
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free

History

Liopleurodon was first discovered by the French paleontologist Henri Sauvage in 1873. All he found were teeth, but they were very distinctive in lacking ridges or serrations that are normally seen on large fossil reptile teeth. Sauvage knew that he had a new animal, and named it Liopleurodon, referring to the smooth sides of the teeth.
