Deadly Dentition

Chomp on this! Three massive pliosaur teeth from the Late Jurassic of the UK.
These are among the largest marine reptile teeth I’ve ever examined. The first is a whopping 22.5 cm long and is from a Pliosaurus. The second is from a Liopleurodon and the third is probably also Pliosaurus.
The first photo was taken by Dr Adam Smith at the Nottingham Natural History Museum. Beautiful illustration by Bob Nicholls ArtDr Dean Lomax – Palaeontologist
I am impressed. T. rex would likely be a snack for this thing.
