Palaeontologists working along the UK’s southwest coast have unearthed a 205-million-year-old jawbone that belonged to an absolutely enormous species of ichthyosaur, a very successful group of aquatic reptiles. At approximately 26m in length, these monsters were one of the largest animals to have ever appeared on Earth.
