Probablemente podía arrastrarse en tierra como un cocodrilo, y media entre cuatro y seis metros de largo; sus restos fueron hallados en Hungría.
Al parecer, al contrario que otros mosasaurios que vivian en el mar pero pasaban parte de su tiempo en agua salobre, el Pannoniasaurus pasaba toda su vida en agua dulce, ya que se han hallado restos de individuos de todas las edades en lo que alguna vez fueron ríos.
Aqui está uno haciendo contorsionismo para caber en la hoja de papel y emboscar a un infeliz Ajkaceratops.
Pannoniasaurus has to be one of the coolest prehistoric creatures discovered recently; it was a mosasaur. A fresh-water mosasaur. With legs.
It could probably walk on land like a crocodile, and was between four and six meters long.
Its remains were found in Hungary.
Unlike other mosasaurs that spent most of their time in saltwater and probably visited brackish water at times, there's evidence that Pannoniasaurus spent its entire life in freshwater, due to specimens of all ages being found in what were once rivers.
Here it is doing some serious contorsionism to fit in the paper sheet and ambush a hapless Ajkaceratops.
We have freshwater plesiosaurid's, freshwater pliosaurid's, and now a species of freshwater mosasaurid. All we need now is to find a species of freshwater ichthyosaurid.
By the way. How big was this Mosasaurid? I'd imagine it wouldn't of been that big since oceanic animals living in freshwater environments aren't as big as oceanic ones due to the fact a freshwater environment is smaller than a oceanic environment.
Great action in this work
Very nice work here
i just looked it up, and it's hard to believe it's from the Santonian epoch. my first guess was somewhere in early to mid Cretaceous. do you know its relationship to other mosasaur species?
I always suspected they would find a freshwater mosasaur. Do you know what time period it lived in?
