Overview Monsterøglene på Svalbard

147 million years ago, the area we now know as Svalbard was covered by a shallow sea. With long snouts and tightly packed teeth large marine reptiles called ichthyosaurs roamed the depths hunting for food.

In this book you will get to know these animals and their habitat. You will also learn how scientists discovered the fossils, find out how they dug them up, and discover what marine reptiles are telling us about life in the Jurassic seas.
