Mosasaurs assigned to the genus Tylosaurus have been reported from the North Atlantic Circle Basin, including the Western Interior Seaway in North America and Europe, from the Turonian of Chihuahua, Mexico, to the early Maastrichtian of Belgium. The youngest record of Tylosaurus in North America is from the middle Campanian of the Pierre Shale, South Dakota. Data obtained by examination of an almost complete skull and associated postcranial elements of a large tylosaurine mosasaur from the… Expand

Abstract During the Late Cretaceous mosasaurs experienced a very rapid diversification, and inhabited almost the whole globe, especially in ancient coastal marine environments and subtropicalExpand
A New Hypothesis of the Phylogenetic Relationships of the Tylosaurinae (Squamata: Mosasauroidea)
TLDR
The hypothesis for a North Atlantic Circle Basin distribution for species of the genus Tylosaurus from the Coniacian to the Maatrichtian is supported, and a more cosmopolitan distribution is suggested for the genus Hainosaurus/Tylosaurus neumilleri with species present along the margins of the Pacific, Indian and Antarctic Ocean Basins.

The iliosacral joint in lizards: an osteological and histological analysis
TLDR
It is hypothesized that limited torsion of the ilium at the ISJ happens when the hip is abducted, and the joint is likely able to absorb the compressional and extensional forces related to the protraction and retraction of the femur. Expand

A new, exquisitely preserved specimen of a small mosasaur, referable to Mosasaurus missouriensis, is reported from the Bearpaw Formation of southern Alberta, Canada, and it is hypothesized that coexistence of these apex predators in theBearpaw Sea was possible because of niche partitioning. Expand
