Nice new type of dinosaur. Maybe you should start drawing something else, like Transformers.

You're not a dinosaur.

Sorry, my dinosaur phase was a decade ago. What is it then? A fish?

No, he's not splitting hairs, unless you want to say you're closely related, kissing cousins, with panda bears. Yes, there is that much difference. And mosasaurs were lizards. Period.

Pretty much, yes. Snakes=/= lizards, though. I mean, they're reptiles, and they are squamatans, but that's when it ends.

Well that's obvious. Are you saying that "Marine Reptiles" are closer related to snakes then?

Not marine reptiles. These marine reptiles the mosasaurs.

Hate to meet that thing in murky waters (the aquatic equivalent of a dark alley).

You did a good job on making it long and slithery-ish, but I think you should pay more attention to the head. It's not quite detailed enough...

Is that dorsal fin only artistic, or is there any evidence that it actually had one?
Reply
:iconemperordinobot:
EmperorDinobot Featured By Owner May 28, 2009
I've seen many reconstructions with the dorsal fin for some reason. But in the end its mostly artistic. I don't really believe they had those. They probably had a thin crest of pointy scales running along their backs instead.

The dorsal fin is actually likely. If I remember right, mosasaurs were related to monitors, so might not have had the spiney scales marine iguanas sport. But a fin would help stabilize the animal as it swam. Just my thoughts... :chew:

My next mosasaur will have a tail fin not too different from a shark's.

Cool! Some of them did have caudal appendages a lot like a shark's, so have fun!
