Ichthyosaurus was the first of the Ichthyosaur family to be discovered. It was large sea-dwelling reptile that lived during the Jurassic Period. Like most Ichthyosaurs it resembled a modern dolphin. It probably gave birth to live young.

In the very early 19th century a young girl named Mary Anning was walking along the southern English coast, nicknamed the Jurassic Coast when she made an incredible discovery. Young Mary had found a nearly complete Ichthyosaurus fossil, the first ever of this genus and the Family that was named after it.[1]

Jurassic Park Toy LinesEdit

An Ichthyosaurus toy was meant to appear in the Jurassic Park: Junior toy line, and even made it to prototype stage, but was cancelled for unknown reasons.
