About this deal

This Mosasaurus Hoffmannii Tooth Fossil (70 million years old) has been displayed and elegantly mounted in a museum quality deep box frame, by our expert in house team.

These mosasaurs primarily fed upon shelled organisms like ammonites and their teeth were adapted to capturing and crushing those cephalopods.These reptiles lived during the latter part of the Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic Era (from about 96 million years ago to about 65 million years ago) Mosasaurs were carnivores eating fish, sea urchins, turtles, and shellfish. Most larger mosasaur species were generalists, snagging any creature that crossed their path and making a quick snack of them. Snakes and monitor lizards also replace their teeth continually, but the ways in which the replacement teeth form are very different. There are numerous similarities between mosasaurs and snakes including the presence of a second row of teeth in the upper jaw of both reptiles. Larger mosasaurs were the great leviathans of their time, extending 10–15 meters, or 33–49 feet long.

Mosasaurs probably evolved from semi-aquatic scaled reptiles which were similar in appearance to modern-day monitor lizards.
