Ichthyosaur’s Last Meal Is Evidence of Triassic Megapredation

Closeup of the stomach area of a fossil ichthyosaur, Guizhouichthyosaurus, showing part of the body of another large marine reptile. The ichthyosaur had swallowed its prey shortly before it died and was fossilized. This is the oldest known direct evidence of megapredation, or a large animal eating another large animal.
