Terror of the Cretaceous seas

Two and a half years in the making, builder Cornbuilder gives us an awesome LEGO representation of a prehistoric terror. Meet the Tylosaurus Proriger, one of the largest known specimens of mosasaur. The average length of these mosasaurs was between 12-15 meters. To put that into perspective, the biggest predator in present-day oceans is the orca, which measures around 5-8 meters. Tylosaurus is nearly twice the size of an orca, and Cornbuilder captures this immensity beautifully!

A great amount of care is shown in the seamless lines and curves of the creature itself. The studs along the surface lend a scaly texture to its skin. This predator is both beautiful and terrifying to behold! Below, sea life as it may have appeared in the Cretaceous Era plays out. With the coral, fish, sharks, and other aquatic life, the Tylosaurus looks even more intimidating and massive. Count me out of any Cretaceous diving expeditions!
