How to use "Ichthyosauria" in context?
Ichthyosaurs were a group of marine reptiles that first appeared in the Late Triassic. Ichthyosaurs ranged in size from the 4.5 meter sail-backed ichthyosaur Eustreptospondylus to the 20 meter long ichthyosaur Plesiosaurus. Ichthyosaurs and other marine reptiles were the dominant carnivores of their time, feeding on fish, squid and other marine creatures. Ichthyosaurs had a long neck, blade-like teeth and an armored sail on their back, making them some of the most successful large predators of their era.
