"Jaws" wouldn't stand a chance...
Our plastic tylosaurus marine dinosaur looks as scary as any sea monster you can imagine, but we promise, it won't bite! Look at the beautiful, realistic detail! Of course, this extinct Cretaceous predator was never seen by humans, so it is painted the way paleontologists think its coloring might have looked. Our plastic toy tylosaurus is made of solid plastic and is quite durable. Be sure to take a look at our other dinosaurs as well as prehistoric animals and humans from many ages of Earth's history.
An early ancestor of snakes and monitor lizards, the tylosaurus was a mosasaur (a large, predatory marine lizard) of the late Cretaceous period. Tylosaurus proriger was nearly 50 feet long, and was among the largest of mosasaurs. It had an elongated snout that was probably for ramming and stunning prey. Tylosaurus was a ferocious predator, feeding on anything smaller than itself, including sharks, fish, and other marine reptiles.
