After a startling discovery in southern England, scientists investigate the skull of what could be one of the largest marine predators ever discovered.
On Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, a startling discovery has been made – the skull of an enormous prehistoric predator the size of a modern sperm whale. What’s remarkable about this find is its similarity to a fossil uncovered in the frozen wastes of the Arctic. Both fossils are the remains of what could be the biggest and deadliest predator that ever ruled the seas, and hold the key to a world beneath the waves 150 million years ago.
Predator X follows the expedition every step of the way, from the painstaking field research to the astonishing find of the amazing pliosaur. Never before has an ancient marine reptile, known as a pliosaur, been found in this part of the world, from this time, on this enormous scale.
Predator X follows a team of experts as they investigate the most formidable predator to terrorise the Jurassic oceans, uncovering a species of giant sea monster that weighed five times as much as a T-Rex, had four times the bite power, and had a body more than fifty foot long with four huge flippers. Stunning visual effects bring the monster to life in this documentary that reveals the story of this incredible beast, the story of how it lived and how it died.
