Mosasauridae - Aquatic Lizard

Framed Mosasaurus Reptile Tooth 400mm

£222.00 GBP

Framed Mosasaurus tooth and artist signed the print 400mm, mahogany framed Mosasaurus tooth Morocco. With a signed print by Ben Pickup, presented with a glass front, allowing good viewing of this wonderful specimen of a Mosasaurus tooth and Ben's art which has been wonderfully drawn with fine detail. The Mosasaur tooth is originally from the phosphate deposits of Khouribga, Ouled Abdoun Basin, Morocco, North Africa. Dating back to the Cenozoic era, late Palaeocene approximately 135 to 65 million years.

The Cretaceous period marine reptile featured in the saga of Jurassic world films. The Mosasaurs were a group of perfectly developed marine predators, resembling a crocodilian and lizard form, huge double-hinged jaws and skulls armed with many teeth; It is thought they could unhinge their jaws and gulp down large prey. Powerful flippers and streamlined bodies. At first, it was thought that Mosasaurs used their bodies like snakes or eels when swimming, in an undulating side to side movement. However, the most recent research nows leads us to theorise their bodies remained stiff and a large fluked tail provided the locomotion which propelled the Mosasaur.

Part of a more ancient group of aquatic lizards, the aigialosaurs group. Mosasaurs breathed air, gave birth to live young and grew from around 3 feet; Dallasaurus turneri, the smallest Mosasaur to 50 feet in length; Mosasaurus hoffmannii, the largest. The Mosasaurs reigned for around 20 million years before the mass extinction which also ended the existence of the dinosaurs, around 65 million years ago at the K-T boundary event. This was the last 20 million years of the Cretaceous period. The Turonian to Maastrichtian ages.
