Plesiosaurs
Plesiosaurs are some of the most instantly
recognisable marine reptiles of the
Mesozoic. With their long necks and huge
flippers they are quite unlike anything
living during the present day.

Plesiosaurs reached their zenith in the
Jurassic and remained common marine
predators until the end of the Cretaceous,
although by this point they were in decline
as the Mosasaurs had risen to replace
them.

The Loch Ness Monster has always been
portrayed as a Plesiosaur, and although
this is obviously not correct it does provide
people with an instant connection to these
long dead reptiles.
Mosasaurs
Larger than almost any other marine
predator during the Cretaceous, Mosasaurs
were the apex predators of the late
Mesozoic seas. With monsters like

Tylosaurus
reaching lengths of almost 50
feet there was nothing to challenge their
dominance in the oceans. There were
some huge sharks (such as
Cretoxyrhina)
but these  were barely half the size of the
largest Mosasaurs.

The massive, compact skulls and short
necks of Mosasaurs distinguished them
from the Plesiosaurs with their long necks
and tiny skulls.
