Always hate to come across these guys! “Ichthyosaurs: Shonisaurus accompanied by pack of Californosaurus” ~ Californosaurus (meaning "California lizard"): an extinct marine reptile (ok, ok ). It was 10 ft (3 m) long. It had 4 paddle-shaped flippers & sharp teeth in long, pointed jaws (looking a bit like a dolphin). They lived during the late Triassic period in seas that covered what is now California. It fed on fish & other small marine creatures.
