We report the discovery of an isolated bone from the lower jaw of a giant ichthyosaur from the latest Triassic of Lilstock, Somerset, UK. It documents that giant ichthyosaurs persisted well into the Rhaetian Stage, and close to the time of the Late Triassic extinction event. This specimen has prompted the reinterpretation of several large, roughly cylindrical bones from the latest Triassic (Rhaetian Stage) Westbury Mudstone Formation from Aust Cliff, Gloucestershire, UK. We argue here that the Aust bones, previously identified as those of dinosaurs or large terrestrial archosaurs, are jaw fragments from giant ichthyosaurs. The Lilstock and Aust specimens might represent the largest ichthyosaurs currently known.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/giant-late-triassic-ichthyosaur-uk-reinterpretation-aust-cliff-dinosaurian-bones", "reader_count"=>11, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Unspecified"=>1, "Researcher"=>5, "Student > Ph.
