What is the difference between the cute yellow and white creature, and the one below encased in stone?
Living fossils

Both are fossils, one living and the other extinct! If Ichthyosaur is still alive today, it would be able to dive 600m effortlessly!

If you are scared of Jaws (Great White shark), meet its grandpa Megalodon. A whopping 30 times bigger than a Great White!

Other giants from the placoderm family, I would not jump into a sea with the 11m monster Placoderm Dunkleosteus! It has beak-like mouth (hard and sharp), just image the painful encounter from a parrot beak (then upsize to Placoderm portion!)

Looks like cockroaches! Only much bigger (multiplies the yuck factor)

Not all dinosaurs and sea monsters are extinct. Some descendants are among us today. Alligator Gar can grow up to 2.5m long! Coelacanth was thought extinct 80million years ago but can still be found today.

Mudskippers can be spotted at swarms, and I have not seen a live Horse shoe crab moving around before. Its legs are like little forks.
