Kronosaurus was a huge, powerful meat-eater that lived in the shallow seas that flooded parts of what is now Australia during the Cretaceous Period. It is not a dinosaur, but instead is one of the most massive known plesiosaurs - a group of seagoing reptiles that includes both long- and short-necked species. The immense head of Kronosaurus was over eight feet (2.4 meters) long, about one-quarter of the creature's total length. This head was much longer than that of the biggest known meat-eating dinosaurs, such as Giganotosaurus and Tyrannosaurus rex. A maneuverable swimmer, Kronosaurus fed on other marine reptiles, fishes, and aquatic invertebrates.
