Tylosaurus was a truly humongous (49 or more feet long) apex predator of the Late Cretaceous, a contemporary of dinosaurs, but itself a mosasaur (predatory marine lizard, most closely related to modern snakes and monitor lizards). It had an elongated, tubular snout from which its name derived, used to ram and stun prey. It is usually found in shallow, near shore waters, though sufficiently rich waters will lure it further out.
