Jurassic Filter Feeders

If art were limited to galleries, it would be a sad old world. This terrific "artist's impression" of Leedsichthys, a giant filter feeding fish that lived during the Jurassic period, is by Robert Nicholls (2010). New research has filled a gap of 100 million years with these giant filter feeders, which died out when the dinosaurs became extinct. Click the title link for more information and an excellent graphic of Bonnerichthys.
