Wow well drawn. Good work on the jaws, looks photorealistic. Poor shark.
But in the end his kind prevailed *shakes fists*

Truly terrifying! Kind of reminds me a bit of Ridley Scott's Alien, what with the second set of teeth waiting inside the mouth. Granted, this is a real creature and the other is a product of the imagination.

I'd say it's really a Mosasaurus hoffmani
According to the newest study,maybe most mosasaurine mosasaurs had tail flukes

Hey mosasaurs! They're local for where I live ;) This is an incredibly cool picture. Did all mosasaurs have the tail fluke? Or is it in more derived species?

But I guess that normally, I'd love to see less of a snaky and bendy body-more whale-like if it'll have a fluke.
