The term mosasaur doesn't refer to a single prehistoric animal, but rather a group of least 40 genera of extinct marine reptiles that lived about 70 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous period.

Mosasaurs were air breathing, had an elongated crocodilian snout, and were fast swimmers thanks to their four fins and tail. They could range in length from just over 3 feet to 56 feet depending on the species. Mosasaurs were carnivores, and their agility made them the dominant marine predators of their era.

These mosasaur teeth measure approximately 0.5" to 1" (13 to 26 mm) long, and were discovered in Khouribga, Morocco. A single mosasaur would have had two rows of teeth like these, which were used to grab hold of their struggling prey.
