About this book

Working from the fossil record, Ellis explores the natural history of these fierce predators, speculates on their habits, and describes how they eventually became extinct. He traces the 200-million-year history of the great ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs and mosasaurs who swam the ancient oceans, drawing on up-to-date research vividly to reconstruct their lives and habitats. Ellis' own very fine illustrations accompany his text.
