Tyranno-sea-rus ... how extinct fish may have looked


By MICHAEL DAY
November 29, 2006

MEET history’s scariest fish — a four-ton monster with the bite of a T-Rex.

The 33ft terrifying Dunkleosteus terrelli roamed the oceans 400million years ago.

Scientists who found fossils say its huge jaws could snap sharks in two, delivering the strongest bite of any fish ever at a force of 11,000lb.

Metal monster ... experts built model to see how huge jaws work and, inset, a shark
would be considered small fry to Dunkleosteus terrelli



And as it opened its mouth the suction was so great it drew in everything in its path.

University of Chicago researchers, who built a metal version based on the bones, told Royal Society journal Biology Letters it was the first "king of the beasts".

If you want real terror, check out Liopleurodon, Xiphactinus, and the other mosasaurs and pliosaurs.

That's not how ancient fish *MIGHT* have looked, it's how they did. That's a dunkleostes, and it's been known about for well over 10 years.

Heh, I wouldnt want to meet him in a dark alley. Or in a bright one for that matter.

They have a live size replica of that beastie hanging from in the Early Vertebrate room at the Natural History Museum in NYC. An awesome site.

Liopleurodon is so overrated...

There was that Walking with Dinosaurs show and suddenly everyone's thinking Lipleurodon was 75 feet long... I've seen some say over 120 feet. Haha. >.< There were other more awesome pliosaurs but everyone's hooked on Liopleurodon, sort of like people's attachment to Tyrannosaurus. ;P

Other than the fact that Liopleurodon is the largest of the Pliosaurs, larger than Kronosaurus and Tylosaurus....

Liopleurodon wasn't more than 7-10 m (23-33 feet) or so; though fragments of larger pliosaurs exist but are not complete enough to determine their origin as coming from larger subspecies of Liopleurodon or some unrelated pliosaur. The giant find from Mexico was not a Liopleurodon.
