Massive Mosasaurus Prognathodon Fossilized Skull
North Africa, Ca 70-65 million years old. Mosasaurus ("lizard of the Meuse River") is a genus of Prognathodon, carnivorous, aquatic lizards, somewhat resembling flippered crocodiles, with elongated heavy jaws. The genus existed during the Maastrichtian age of the Cretaceous period (Mesozoic era), around 7065 million years ago in the area of modern Western Europe and North America. The name means "Meuse lizard", as the first specimen was found near the Meuse River (Latin Mosa + Greek sauros lizard). Skull is a complete specimen with dozens of sharp teeth and lower and upper jaws. At center of fossil is a small symmetrical depression indicating it was bitten by another dinosaur. 41"W x 40"H, weighing a hefty 300 pounds in the museum-grade matrix. Custom floor stand included.

Fragmented and professionally mounted as shown - ready to display!

PROVENANCE: Ex-Van Buskirk collection, Tucson, AZ
