"You're going to need a bigger boat!"

Looks like an oversized African Tiger Fish crossed with a Tarpon. Probably not something you would have wanted to see while in the ocean.

dunkleosteus_by_sameerprehistorica-d75vryh.jpg

This is a heavily armored fish that had the second most powerful bite of any fish next to Megalodon. Instead of teeth, it possessed two pairs of sharp bony plates which formed a beak-like structure. At 30 feet in length and weighing 5 tonnes or more.

(Human - 6 feet tall)

This is a fish that you don't want to meet !

Sorry for a short distraction but the fish and chips picture forces me to tell a little story. In Britain and some parts of the US it is common to put vinegar on one's chips, but for the rest of the US tomato ketchup is used for "French fries." One day in a town in Utah I had a hamburger and fries and asked for some vinegar. "What in the world for?" "For the fries."

The waitress called out the cook and everyone else to see this phenomenon of someone putting vinegar on French fries.

I had the same reaction in England when I asked for Worcestershire Sauce for my steak, apparently it's only used for drinks like the Bloody Mary across the pond.

LOL..I know. Megalodon is the first fish i made.It has the most powerful bite of any animal.Second powerful bite goes to Dunkleosteus for which the link i gave above.

Thanks. I am sure you know that Liopleuodon is a Pliosaur. Actually the next image i am making is for a Pliosaur and it is not Liopleuodon because it is only like 21 feet or so.The Liopleuodon featured in BBC as 82 ft long and 150 tonnes is a joke. Then there was another Pliosaur hyped as very big called as Predator X at 45 tonnes and 50 ft long or so and it's size has been somewhat reduced as well.Now it is like 40 or 42 feet and 20 tonnes or so.Even though this seems to be the current largest Pliosaur.So i am going to make Pliosaurus Funkei (Predator X).

I made a Mosasaur before many days and i have to update somethings in it.After i update it,i will let you know.

I was wrong.Pliosaurus macromerus is the largest Pliosaur.It could be 45 to 60 ft in length and 25 to 35 tonnes or so.

Well, in any case I wouldn't want to swim in the same pool!

I've always liked this quote from Job: "Can you pull in Leviathan with a fishhook, or tie down it tongue with a rope? If you lay a hand on it, you will remember the struggle and never do it again!" Job 41:1,8

steller_s_sea_cow_by_sameerprehistorica-d78ljhi.jpg

It was a large, herbivorous marine mammal. At 26 - 30 feet long and weighing 8 to 10 tonnes. The last Steller's Sea Cow is thought to have become extinct by 1768.

(Human - 6 feet tall)

Poor Giant Sea Cow can't able to make it till today. What's the wonder when there are Human beings around.
