Sea Dinosaurs and Jurassic World. Which Were the Most Terrifying Old Animals?

Sea Dinosaurs and Jurassic World. Which Were the Most Terrifying Old Animals?

Sea Dinosaurs and Jurassic World. Are you interested in Dinosaurs? Legends insist that big dinosaurs lived neck-deep in water. This is not true, although they were not averse to taking a dip, and some of the most terrifying old animals lived in the dark seas. For example, the Dakosaurus, the Megalodon or that giant scorpion called Jaekolepturus Rhenanina.

How about the Helicoprion? Isn’t it scary? A 2013 study places the tooth-whorl at the back of the jaw. There, the tooth-whorl occupied the entire mandibular arch. Wooow!

Do you want to know more? Tylosaurus was among the largest of all the mosasaurs reaching maximum lengths of 15 m (49 ft). And Lyviatan Melvillei was 13.5 to 17.5 metres (44–57 ft) long!

Anyway, my favorite is the Mosasaurus, a gigantic carnivore! It swam seas around the globe 80 million to 66 million years ago. Of course, it’s one of the main protagonists in Jurassic World movie.

Sea Dinosaurs. Take a look at this video now!

** Dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade Dinosauria. They appeared during the Triassic period, about 231.4 million years ago. And they were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years, until the end of the Cretaceous (66 million years ago), when the extinction event led to the extinction of most dinosaur groups. That happened at the end of the Mesozoic Era.

The word dinosaur means ‘terrible lizard’, although dinosaurs are not lizards. In fact, they represent a separate group of reptiles that did not exhibit characteristics usually seen as reptilian. For example, a sprawling limb posture.

Nevertheless, mounted fossil dinosaur skeletons have been major attractions at museums around the world. Thus, dinosaurs have become an enduring part of world culture.
