An excellent introduction to the sometimes overlooked marine predators that lived alongside the dinosaurs! A lot of detail is presented here, so be prepared to act like a sponge and soak it all up.

Great short course, perfect for an introduction to ancient marine reptiles. I recommend taking the other Palaeontology courses by this university on this site if you haven't already.

This course was very interesting and helpful. It helped me to really understand marine reptiles, unlike many introductory science books that only lists the names of those reptiles.

this is the best course ever for someone who wants to learn about pentalogy because if you have a pet reptile it's a great way to know the history of the ocean with reptiles.

A great course with just enough detail to get into the subject without overwhelming those without a university background.
Love the delivery style and assessment options.

The course would have benefited from being spaced more over a week or two with more resources to cover but otherwise is was excellent and I learned a great deal from it.
