MOSASAURUS DINOSAUR FOSSIL HALISAURUS ARAMBOURGI MOSASAUR JURASSIC TREASURE
What's scarier than a Loch Ness monster or a Megalodon?? Oh ya, it's something you may have never heard before. It's called the MOSASAUR! A long extinct apex predator, in fact the mosasaur was such an intense predator, if it was still swimming our oceans the Megalodon might have never even existed! These nightmarish marine animals were actually giant lizards somewhat like the land dwelling Komodo dragon. Imagine a lizard monster with the double hinge jaw of a snake with massive teeth and a tail like a shark.. oh and they can be as large as 18 meters - 54 FEET (depending on the species) that's 4 meters longer than your average yellow school bus! So, they basically ate anything they wanted (fish, dolphins, whales, sharks, even other Mosasaurus) Fossils from this species have been found on every continent including Antarctica, evidence that these lizard kings dominated the ocean.xx
