Stenopterygius, one of the Ichthyosauruses, was an aquatic reptile that filled the same niche that the dolphins and porpoises exist in today. They were fast swimmers and fed on fish and other sea life. Some typical features of this reptile are long jaws with numerous teeth, eyes set within a ring of bony plate, the reduction of the pelvic girdle components, the associated paddle, and subdivided finger rows. The most astonishing feature of the Ichthyosauruses is that they gave live births. Fossils have been discovered that show a mother that had died while giving birth. The Ichthyosauruses were most prevalent during the Jurassic period.
