Figure numbers 13 to 15 are a trio of marine reptiles, and their dark blue colour works very well for aquatic animals.
This is truely a marine reptile lover’s dream come true. For years, Nothosaurus, Metriorhynchus, Basilosaurus and the like were all hard to find and expensive (if there were any to even be found) – until now.

CollectA’s 2009 Tylosaurus figure measures a mere 18.5 cm long, but that’s only due to the pose it’s sculpted in.
Like it or not, Papo have created their first mosasaur and to cut to the chase: it’s a downright failure.
The vast inland sea known as the Western Interior Seaway of the Late Cretaceous split the continent that we would come to know today as North America from north to south. As the landmasses on either side were ruled by dinosaurs and other terrestrial animals, this inland sea was ruled by huge marine reptiles.

Lizards have been around about as long as dinosaurs, and during their time on Earth their family tree has produced some weird side branches.

Another is the mosasaurs, a group of large aquatic lizards that included some of the largest predators of the late Cretaceous.
