When people think of a scary dinosaur, the T-Rex is the first to come on mind. The T-Rex was the biggest dinosaur, the ruler if you like. Just as the lion is nowadays considered the king of the jungle, the T-Rex was considered the king among dinosaurs.

But he was a land dinosaur. What about the ancestors that lived in the deep sea? The king among them was the Mosasaur.

Up until the 18th century, the mosasaur was not a known as a species. The mosasaurs are an extinct group of large marine reptiles. The first fossil remains were discovered in 1764.

With their six-foot jaw and nasty disposition, the mosasaurs dined on ginat sharks and plesiosaurs. They had an extra set of ten teeth on the roof of their mouth. This ensured that when the mosasaur sunk its teeth into the prey, the only way for it go was down its gullet.

This documentary focuses on the mosasaur, and how these creatures lived and flourished back in the days.
