Assistant Professor of Biology Lars Schmitz and a team of researchers have identified the first giant marine predator to have lived in prehistoric times 250 million years ago. These macropredators, known as Thalattoarchon saurophagis, or "lizard-eating ruler of the seas," were at the top of the marine food chain. Dr. Schmitz and his colleagues worked with fossils that they excavated from the Nevada dessert. For details, please visit the link below from National Geographic magazine.
