References

The Mosasaur was a large marine reptile, air breathing & used its tail for propulsion. They probably relied on ambush predation, much like a crocodile, and they are known to have eaten ammonites - the shells of which sometimes show the distinct line of a Mosasaur's teeth puncturing through as the result of a savage bite. They were the dominant predator of the Cretacious seas.
