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
