Feel like going swimming? Me neither.
Our plastic rhomaleosaurus marine dinosaur looks as scary as any sea monster you can imagine, but we promise, it won't bite! Look at the beautiful, realistic detail! Of course, this extinct Cretaceous predator was never seen by humans, so it is painted the way paleontologists think its coloring might have looked. Our plastic toy rhomaleosaurus is made of solid plastic and is quite durable. Be sure to take a look at our other dinosaurs as well as prehistoric animals and humans from many ages of Earth's history.
Cruising the English coastline more than 175 million years ago, the Rhomaleosaurus (Rhomaleosaurus cramptoni) was a large marine reptile of the Mesozoic era. This amazing predator was believed to be over 20 feet long and fed on ichthyosaurs, ammonites, and other plesiosaurs. The first fossils were unearthed in an Alum quarry near Whitby, England in 1848. Rhomaleosaurus was later given its scientific name by Harry Seeley (a British paleontologist) in 1874.
