Product Details

9" Long Tylosaurus - Realistic Dinosaur Replica

by Papo

The Tylosaurus, or Knob lizard, is one of the largest mosasaurs that lived in the late Cretaceous period who relied on their tails to propel through the water instead of their flippers. This marine reptile had a tail with more than 80 vertebrae, measured approximately 46 feet long and could be found in the Western Interior Seaway as one of the dominant predators feeding on fish, smaller mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, sharks and more! It is believed that their reinforced snout was used to ram and stun their prey before devouring them, a technique that is used by predatory whales like Livyatan and sharks such as C. megalodons. The first remains of the Tylosaurus were discovered in Kansas by O.C. Marsh in 1868. The Tylosaurus was caught in the middle of the great dinosaur fossil wars between paleontologist Marsh and E.D. Cope who both uncovered the remains of hundreds of prehistoric animals in the American West. The Tylosaurus will make a great addition to any collector of aquatic dinosaurs.
