Fishing Buddies by HodariNundu Fishing Buddies by HodariNundu
Un esbozo rapido :B Un Megacephalosaurus y un mosasaurio pescando juntos (iba a ponerlos luchando pero hay que variar...)
Megacephalosaurus fue un pliosaurio que vivió a principios del Cretácico tardío; se creia que era una especie de Brachauchenius pero ahora se sabe que era distinto, y mas grande además.

A quick sketch :B Megacephalosaurus and a mosasaur fishing together (I was going to make them fight but then thought I should vary a little)
Megacephalosaurus was a pliosaur that lived during the early part of the late Cretaceous; it was thought to be a species of Brachauchenius, but now is known to have been different... and bigger, too.

10m is very much on the large side. McHenry's PHD thesis has the largest specimen of Brachauchenius at 7,860m. Megacephalosaurus was a specimen of Brachauchenius.

Anyway, while it was contempory to Mosausaurs, it seems not to have been contemporary to Mosasaurs that size. Nevertheless the picture is awesome.

Is there actually any mosasaur apart from Dallasaurus known to have existed in that period of the Cretaceous:? Just wondering...
Reply
:iconhodarinundu:
HodariNundu Featured By Owner May 27, 2013   General Artist
They were seemingly not very abundant but they were there- at least in Mexico and South America there are remains of mosasaurs that old If Im not mistaken

This got me thinking. Who would win a fight between a Kronosaurus and Mososaurus?
Reply
:iconjwartwork:
JWArtwork Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My bets are on Kronosaurus, which would likely win with a strong surprise attack. I think the mosasaur's body plan would be too slender and not really allow such a powerful torpedo-attack.

But wouldn't it depend on which Mosasaurus species? Isn't M. hoffmanni exceptionally huge?
Reply
:iconcoherentsheaf:
coherentsheaf Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013  Hobbyist
I think the size of Mosausaurus hoffmani is very much exaggerated in the literature. Lingham-Soliar uses a 1:11 skull to total length ratio, misreading Russel who actually has a ratio of 1:10. But even this ratio is suspect as no Mosasaur species seems to actually have such a ratio. In the original description of Prognathodon curri head to body length ratios were discussed and all of them would yield a lower total length for Mosasaurus. I think total lengths in excess of 14m are stretching it. Scaling from Alexanders body mass estimate of Tylosaurus, such a Mosasaurus would weigh around 3500kg. Even if Mosasaurus weighs twice as much at equal length to Tylosaurus, even the largest Mosasaurus is smaller than the Kronosurus MCZ1285 which is most recently estimated to weigh 11-12tonnes.

I never realized that there could be this sort of discrepancy, really, but how long ago was Lingham-Soliar's estimate proven to be incorrect, and has the corrected result been published?

There has been nothing published on this estimate explicitely to my knowledge. I discussed this estimate with explicit sources here:

Guess even if Mosasaurus wasn't over 50 feet long (I'd been writing a short paleofiction on its environment and had overestimated one of my exceptionally old, gigantic Mosasaurus characters)a 40-ish foot animal would be pretty scary, ...I wonder though, I'd like to keep the max. size at around 45 feet long, about 13 or 14 meters for the exceptionally large old animal
