The Ichthyosaurus was an extinct marine reptile. It was a type of prehistoric reptile that lived during the Mesozoic Era, specifically the early Jurassic period, around 200 to 180 million years ago. Ichthyosaurs were well-adapted to life in the water and resembled modern dolphins or porpoises in their body shape and swimming habits.

Ichthyosaurs had streamlined bodies, limb modifications that resembled flippers, and a dorsal fin, all of which helped them navigate and hunt in the oceans. They were carnivorous and likely preyed on various marine creatures such as fish, squid, and other small marine reptiles.
