they are the same, they didn't evolve into another, they didn't devolve, I mean who calls a dinosaur or prehistoric animal predator x, it's of cause a nickname so they are the same. I am sick and tired of hearing "t-rex evolved into that and spiny evolved into that, shut up, evolution is a lie!!!
If hear one more person saying he evolved into that and he evolved from that, I will become the worst troll you never imagine, but off topic now They're the same, finish and done with
Really. Evolution can happen in almost any living thing.

And I never said that T-rex evolves! For the last bloody time there's no T-rex, it's T. rex!

And we can observe evolution in bacteria today, proving evolution.

And Predator X =/= Liopleurodon.

They're different, Predator X is 15-16 meters and 15 tons.
Liopleurodon is around 10-14 meters and less than 10 tons.
These are my estimates.

How can predator x or Lio be thought to be biggest predator kronosaurus was bigger yet than Lio and shonisaurus was a itchyasaur relative that was bigger than all of these it ate other fish so it was a predator all these celebrity status Dino's are always getting the attention when there were better predators yet

Uhm, each predator is good at what they hunt, bigger doesn't mean better, and if you define a predator as eating another animal for food then the title of the biggest predator belongs to the blue whale... For now. Liopleurodon is in the 7 m range as far as I know Predator X now know as Pliosaurus funkei is a few meters longer than Kronosaurus though I have no idea which one is heavier. First of all, these are no dinosaurs, just marine reptiles that co-existed with dinosaurs what's wrong with them getting the attention? Every animal has interesting features and lots stuff to discuss about, so much that we can only have our attention on a few animal at a time.

I think liopleurdon is a another predator X but it evolved to a slightly bigger version of predator X,
could be true. But they look the same :( as i said it might a bigger version of predator X with different markings. your probably saying we cant see markings on fossils?
compere a bone from predator X's spin and from a liopleurdon and see the difference :)

Liopleurodon was about 30-60ft long while it was rumored to be 82ft long. Predator X was about 60ft long. Predator X is bigger than Liopleurodon, but is smaller than the 82ft long one.

Once again, wild figures pulled from the air - or, this time, from the original Walking With Dinosaurs.

I loved WWD as much as anybody - I bought the original on VHS, later on DVD. But they grossly exaggerated the size of both Liopleurodon and Ornithocheirus, and it doesn't take very long with Google to get more reliable figures.

Liopleurodon ferox, the first known species, was first described in the 1800s based on only teeth. Comparison to the Harvard Kronosaur specimen (from Queensland, Australia) led to some impressive size estimates. It was estimated at the time that a pliosaur's skull was 1/7 its body length.

But the Harvard Kronosaur was erroneously mounted, with extra vertebrae exaggerating the length. Current estimates are that the skull is between 1/4 and 1/5 of the body length.

The best current estimates of Liopleurodon's length are between 20 and 40 feet - that's feet, not meters. There is very little postcranial fossil material for Lio, so it's hard to say, but there is NOTHING to support any wild 20-30 meter claims. Kronosaurus was bigger.

Predator X seems to be bigger, too. There's another fossil to consider, a Mexican pliosaur called "the Monster of Aramberri." This one may well prove to be the biggest pliosaur yet discovered.

In the meantime: Walking With Dinosaurs was an amazing and excellent show, but it's half speculation. A lot of its speculation has proven to be wrong. It is NOT a scientific source. Watch it, enjoy it, but check the claims before you accept them as facts.

And as for creatures "devolving" or shrinking for Arctic environments: There is no such thing as devolution. Arctic environments would encourage bigger size, not smaller, as mass homeothermy would help withstand the cold. Look at whales in the Arctic.

For sources, take a quick look at Wikipedia, or at Plesiosaur.com . Both have current best knowledge about Liopleurodon.

This is a child's perspective of this so dont take the micky but I believe the Liproladon is bigger as can grow up to over 100 tonnes and if you get any higher than that I believe you have to be highly specialised and have factors that Predator x didn't.And the chance of being the same size...well that could well have happened.

Liopleuridon is only 20 feet long so I guess it weighed 5 tons a foot lol

Yah Predator X hands down Lio is a fraction of the weight!
