Re: Prehistoric Plankton Predators & Other Behemoths



It's _Leedsichthys_, actually, if I may correct the typo -- _L. problematicus_, 
from the Middle Jurassic of England. According to some recent estimates it was 
ca. 25 m long, which would make it easily the bigest known fish of all time:

Talking of marine monsters, does anyone know if the recently discovered 
23-metre-long Carnian ichthyosaur from Canada has been officially named?
