313 pages, 51 b/w illustrations
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.
