This picture shows what happens when the hunter becomes the hunted, as a giant pliosaur called Brachauchenius lucasi attacks an early Clidastes mosasaur.  Although pliosaurs became extinct during Turonian time, they were still present in the Western Interior Sea when the first mosasaurs arrived. Even though mosasaurs were top predators, their young were often preyed upon by sharks, large fish, and even other species of mosasaurs.  Life could be short for the unwary.
