❃ The Tylosaurus was a large, aggressive marine reptile that lived during the late Cretaceous period. It measured up to 46 feet in length and weighed up to 20 tons. Its long, sharp teeth and powerful tail made it a formidable predator.
❃ It is thought to have preyed upon large fish, squid, and other marine reptiles. It may also have attacked and eaten land dinosaurs that ventured too close to the water's edge. The Tylosaurus is the perfect cue to play scary music when you're in the water.
❃ Tylosaurus is one of the best-known prehistoric reptiles, thanks in part to its many appearances in popular culture, including famous Jurassic movies.
