The jaw son of the upper dragon is about 8 feet (2.4 meters), which is 4.5 times larger than the tyrannosaur. The dragon is almost twice the size of a modern killer whale, weighs tens of tons and can devour any creature in the water. The fossil is about 33 feet (10 meters) long and surrounds ancient crocodile teeth and turtle shells. The fossil was discovered in a former tropical archipelago dotted with heated lagoons and reservoirs.
