Mosasaur Teeth

Mosasaur Teeth come from a family of large marine reptiles with paddle like fins. They were strong swimmers who roamed the Cretaceous seas as the dominant predators. They ranged in size from the smallest Carinodens belgicus about 10 feet (3 meters) to the largest Tylosaurus and Hainosaurus that could be over 48 feet (15 meters). The mosasaur who owned this fossilized skeleton lived during the Cretaceous Period and grew to be 20 to 30 feet long. They were fierce predators whose primary prey was fish.
