Earth's oceans have been home to some of the largest, fiercest and most successful predators ever to exist.
Visitors will discover the remarkable evolution and ecosystems of these great underwater creatures. They will step back in time to experience life beneath the waves and come face-to-face with ferocious hunters and their prey, as they were millions of years ago during the Jurassic period.
Striking specimens, including fully articulated 3D models and life-size casts from the Natural History Museum's collections, will show the predators of the Jurassic seas in their natural habitats. Rich audio, visual and digital interpretation and graphics enable visitors to find out how these predators adapted to survive.
