DINO-A-DAY #96: Liopleurodon

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!

ORDER: Plesiosauria
EXISTED DURING: Middle–Late Jurassic
DISCOVERED: France, 1873
FUN FACT: Today’s fun fact is that our book is out! Go grab a copy for yourself, and if you’re feeling frisky donate a copy to your local school library!
