  • I was a huge 11 metres in length. That's as long as a bus!
  • My favourite food was fish and meat and I hooked fish from the water with my impressive 32–centimetre–long hand claw.
  • I could gulp the equivalent of 833 fish fingers in a single day.
  • Natural History Museum scientists excavated and named me more than 25 years ago so I really feel at home here.
