Description

Kronosaurus is a marine reptile from the pliosaur family dating back to the Early Cretaceous period and takes its name from the Greek god Kronos. Kronosaurus’ large, sharp teeth and enormous size – it can grow to in excess of 10m in length – made it the apex predator of its era, while this genus’ powerful flippers allow it to swim at high speeds.

Discovery

Although the genus was officially described in 1924, it was initially discovered in 1899 when a small bone fragment was unearthed in Hughenden, a small town in Queensland, Australia. Further investigation of the area led to the unearthing of a near-complete skeleton that allowed paleontologists to gain a better understanding of the genus.

Paleoecology

Although the majority of specimens have been found in Australia, Kronosaurus fossils have been found as far away as Colombia. Research suggests that the genus preferred to swim in shallow waters, while analysis of the stomach contents of the near-complete skeleton showed that it fed mainly on smaller plesiosaurs, fish and squid.
