Video: Predator X, most powerful marine reptile ever

This deadly hunter had a skull twice the size of a Tyrannosaurus rex’s, and a bite force unmatched by anything in the Jurassic seas. Cool video!

In 2006, a fossil was dug out of a frozen island high in the Arctic. At 15 meters long and weighing about 45 tons, it was a colossal marine reptile, twice as big as most ocean predators.

This video is from BBC’s Earth’s Planet Dinosaur program.
