It might be a little hard taking this marine reptile seriously after looking at Ophthalmosaurus pictures. After all, it does look like a dolphin that has been suddenly surprised. In fact, it might even be safe to say that its eyes are comically large in comparison to the rest of its features. However, those eyes served a very important function for this animal. First, they had a large bony ring around them that kept the eyes from popping out under high pressure. Second, it allowed more light into this animal’s eye and therefore, allowed it to see in darker portions of the ocean. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that these eyes were used so it could hunt for prey at deeper ocean levels than what other marine reptiles could. Most likely, it would’ve have been able to go to extraordinary depths to hunt for its prey. It also may have allowed this marine reptile to dive to avoid predators.
