If she survives the perils to come...

she'll return here one day

and have young of her own.

Already she finds

competition for food.

There's the Hesperornis...

a bird that can't fly

and has a beak full of sharp teeth.

And the Styxosaurus...

a distant cousin of the dolly's...

with a supersized neck.

An adult can reach 35 feet in length...

more than half of it neck.

Its shape makes it

a slower swimmer...

but it's great for catching fish.

The little dolly soon comes across

creatures that move...

by pumping jets of water

from their shells.

They're called ammonites...

and they thrive in the ancient sea.

They have rock-hard armor

and perhaps another defense.

Swim too close,

like the little female...

and get a face full of ink.

But that doesn't stop

a young Platecarpus...

when it wants a snack.

Ammonites were once abundant.

Their fossils have been uncovered often...

even by a road crew in Texas.

Ammonites.

A lot of'em.

Ammonites.

A lot of'em.

[Narrator]

There were many kinds of ammonites...

and we know

when most of them lived...

so their fossils are like markers in time.

Identify an ammonite and you can date

other less common fossils nearby.

That helps place dollies

in the long history of marine reptiles.

It began some 250 million years ago...

in the Triassic period...

with land reptiles

that moved into the sea.

They developed webbed feet,

then flippers.

Some had elaborate armor.

Into the Jurassic,

they continued to evolve.

To see at great depths...

some had eyes

the size of dinner plates-

top predators

who grew immense and powerful...

reaching their peak

in the late Cretaceous...

near the end of the dinosaur age...

the very time

when the Dolichorhynchops lived.

Months have passed.

The female and her brother
