Himalayasaurus Size



Himalayasaurus is one of the largest ichthyosaurs, perhaps reaching 14-15 m in length or more.

Fossils have been found in Tibet, Asia.  

The coloration near the tail looks like a Himalayan mountain itself.

Ichthyosaurs are often overlooked while mosasaurs and pliosaurs get the most attention, and are thought to have been the top predators of the Mesozoic oceans. Himalayasaurus is a good example that there were also macropredatory ichthyosaurs that surpassed even largest mosasaurs and pliosaurs in size.
