Mosasaurs are an extinct species of carnivorous marine reptile which became the dominant predator during the last 20 million years of the Cretaceous period. Mosasaurs breathed air, were powerful swimmers, and were well-adapted to living in the warm, shallow, epicontinental seas prevalent during the Late Cretaceous Period. Mosasaurs were so well adapted to this environment that they gave birth to live young, rather than return to the shore to lay eggs.
