Massive ‘sea monster’ found in Britain

An incredible new Pliosaur has been discovered in Dorset.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Pliosaurs are types of plesiosaurs, they lived upto 200 million years ago and dominated the seas covering Britain. This new discovery is really important because of it’s size. It gives a sense of how rich in life the seas must have been, just to provide enough food for this predator!

Have a look at our Plesiosaurs and Ichthyosaurs next time you are in the museum. Even these are tiny compared to the new one they have found in Dorset!
