Plunge into the prehistoric depths of imagination with this set of 4 ferocious marine reptile figures. These toothy predators of the deep are ready to provide hours of educational entertainment, with scientifically accurate figures of Plesiosaurs and Mosasaurs!

  • Characteristics: Many different type of marine reptiles roamed the seas during the Mesozoic Era. While not dinosaurs, they were no less fearsome and impressive. This set includes Elasmosaurus, a Plesiosaur from the Plesiosauridae family, as well as Kronosaurus and Liopleurodon, two Plesiosaurs from the Pliosauridae family. Lastly, it includes Mosasaurus, one of a group of marine lizards collectively called Mosasaurs. They all have similar body types, with flippers instead of legs and mouths full of sharp teeth, though Elasmosaurus has a long neck and a much smaller head than the others.

  • Size and Color:This set includes 4 hand-painted swimming reptiles:

    The Elasmosaurus figure is 10 inches long and 4 ¾ inches wide from flipper to flipper. Its body is dark green above fading to lighter yellow below, with a yellow marking on its neck just behind the head.

    The Kronosaurus figure is 13 ½ inches long and 7 ¾ inches wide from flipper to flipper. It features a color pattern that helps it blend in among the ocean waves, with dappled dark blue above and white below, with reddish pink on the inside of its mouth.

    The Liopleurodon is 7 inches long and 4 inches wide from flipper to flipper. Its coloration is similar to the Kronosaurus, with dark blue above and white below.

    The Mosasaurus is 9 ¼ inches long and 3 ¼ inches wide, with a gray blue body that fades to a lighter tone on its underside.

History

Plesiosaurs were reptiles that ruled the oceans from the Triassic Period, just over 200 million years ago, until the end of the Cretaceous around 66 million years ago when most dinosaurs and other large reptiles became extinct. They came in two forms - the long-necked, small-headed Plesiosauridae and the short-necked, large-headed Pliosauridae. 

Mosasaurs were another large group of marine reptiles that appeared during the Cretaceous Period. They were not closely related to Plesiosaurs, and were actually lizards, believed to be closely related to modern monitor lizards including the Komodo Dragon.
