Jurassic Park Wiki

Ophthalmosaurus (Eye Lizard) was an Ichthyosaur of the Middle to Late Jurassic period. It is widely known for its disproportionately large eyes, which give the species its name. It had a toothless jaw perfect for catching squids and a 19.5 ft (6m) dolphin-shaped body. Ophthalmosaurus was closely related to its more famous cousin, Ichthyosaurus.
