Magical Tim Haines Liopleurodons

Look Charlie, its the magical Liopleurodon!

Calling Liopleurodon magical may seem silly but in Walking With Dinosaurs and Primeval’s case, that description would be quite fitting.

Liopleurodon was actually about 6-7 metres long, possibly 10, but probably no more than that. So the idea it could pluck a Eustreptospondylus off the land is obviously make-believe. A 25 METRE Liopleurodon is just going to far.


The source of this nonsense comes from one man, Tim Haines. This guy worked on the “Walking with” series and is co-creator and executive producer of Primeval. When asked why the Liopleurodon is so big he said something along he lines of “Just because we haven’t found one yet, doesn’t mean they didn’t get that large”. Yeah, just because we haven’t found a Unicorn, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Oh by the way, Santa doesn’t exist. (Maybe its quite fitting to have an oversized Liopleurodon living with Unicorns!)

Oh submarine, I don’t know how I can express the feelings I have for you…

It’s not a surprise then that another magical Liopleurodon (Actually there were 3) attacked a nuclear submarine. Oh, and living with him was this:

So what is it? Apparently Tim Haines confirmed that the Balaur which will appear in Episode 5.3 will be coloured black with red eyes, as a joke because it comes from Transylvania. Oddly the dino in 5.3 is a Dromaeosaurus so many say the one in 5.2 is a Balaur, as it fits the description. Others say it is a Eustreptospondylus. Balaur did have a third, useless digit on its hand, which would have been visible if the animal had no feathers, like this freak of nature. But unfortunately, it had neither in Primeval!

It doesn’t matter what I am, I’m going to get eaten anyway!

Poor Eustreptospondylus, remembered through time as “that dino which was grabbed from the water’s edge”. While I still find people on YouTube and various Forums who still think Liopleurodon is King. Sad really.

Revenge is tasty!

    25 m is ridiculous. L. ferox is 11 m MAXIMUM and L. rossicus 6-8 m. A better “super marine predator” for WWD would have been Mosasaurus. I’m sure Liopleurodon itself wouldn’t be impressed with all these fanboys. Would YOU want someone worshipping you as a god?

      u dum f**k Liopleurodon biggest skeleton is in england its 21ft if u think Megalodon is better your a RETARD Liopleurodon is the king of the seas and that pick u have saying these fanboy think its the king of the seas its a big wave that put it out of the water it evolved in 2 a Chocodile it will Evolve in 2 a Liopleurdon when Global Waming comes they will evolve this like there Ansestors

        You are a perfect example of why Liopleurodon is still so popular. It wasn’t remotely related to a crocodile, in fact it wasn’t even an Archosaur.

        By the way, 21ft is a little more than 6 metres so you just disagreed with yourself.

      • Lord of the Allosaurs says:

        Idiot. Textbook fanboy. There is no evidence to suggest 25 m for Liopleurodon; it was imagined by Tim Haines; his argument had less supporting evidence than the 8 foot Spinosaurus skull. Fine if Liopleurodon is 25 m and eats Eustreptospondylus then Spinosaurus is 21 m and hunts Tyrannosaurus. Happy now? And what is with your claim that Liopleurodon was 6 m? You’re contradicting yourself, buddy. Also, where did I say that megalodon is “better”, or even mention it for that matter? Wait, you mean Mosasaurus. That’s a marine lizard. Carcharocles megalodon is a shark. If you don’t know the difference between a shark and a lizard, please repeat the second grade. And I never said Mosasaurus was “better” than Liopleurodon, only that it would have been a better candidate for Liopleurodon’s role. That’s because it’s a larger, agile, and generally more powerful predator, but that doesn’t make it “better” than Liopleurodon. It just fills Liopleurodon’s film role better.

        P.S. How old are you, 10?
