Filter-feeding Pliosaur by Pristichampsus Filter-feeding Pliosaur by Pristichampsus
This is based on Johnfaa's "incredible whulk", which is a refinement of Dixon's Whulk from "The New Dinosaurs". Instead of engulfing prey in the way of a baleen whale, this plesiosaur (technically a Polycotylid), feeds in the same way as a filter-feeding pterosaur, straining edible sealife from the sediment or from krill swarms.

I had an idea similar to this, but mine was a little more whale-ish.
