The Carthorynchus lenticarpus is an early member of the ichtyosaurides family which fossil was found in China in 2011. It lived in the early Triassic period, 248 million years ago and preyed on small soft bodied animals. It measured 40cm and weighed 2kg. Made with Zbrush and Photoshop. Hope you enjoy! :)

So, something that survived the Permian extinction some 250-51 M yrs ago?

Carthorhynchus is a very early representative of the ichtyosaurides family, it appeared a few million years after the Permian extinction.

Seemed pretty small.  Thus, a fish not reptile.
