Largest fish to have lived.  Leedsichthys was a giant fish that would have dwarfed every other animal in the sea, but it was a gentle giant that lived on the tiny shrimps, jellyfish and small fish that make up plankton. It would have swum slowly through the upper waters of the ocean, taking mouthfuls of plankton-rich water and sieving them through the giant mesh-plates at the back of its mouth.

Always hate to come across these guys! “Ichthyosaurs: Shonisaurus accompanied by pack of Californosaurus”  ~  Californosaurus (meaning "California lizard"): an extinct marine reptile (ok, ok ). It was 10 ft (3 m) long. It had 4 paddle-shaped flippers & sharp teeth in long, pointed jaws (looking a bit like a dolphin). They lived during the late Triassic period in seas that covered what is now California. It fed on fish & other small marine creatures.
