During the Jurassic period, the Liopleurodon enjoyed Apex predator status as it swam the ocean devouring every fish in sight. This marine reptile had a body extending 30 feet with four flippers enabling it to move rapidly through the water. Though experts are still in the dark when it comes to more specific facts about the Liopleurodon, one common theory is that their success stemmed from an unusually keen sense of smell due to the forward position of the nostrils on its snout. This, in addition to its enormous jaw and swift movement, would have enabled it to truly dominate the Jurassic waters.
On the reverse face of 2022 1 oz Colorized Congo Liopleurodon Coins there is a remarkable depiction of a Liopleurodon swimming through the ocean. With its tail sticking partially above the water, the marine reptile opens its jaws and prepares to consume a much smaller fish. Along the rim, there are inscriptions of the series name and the years that the Liopleurodon swam the ocean.
