I digged this one my self, on my last trip to Morocco.
Prognathodon is known for having a very robust skull.
Prognathodon constitutes one of the largest-bodied mosasaur genera, with the largest known skull (belonging to P. Currii) exceeding 140 cm in length. Despite its massive size, remains of the genus are often fragmentary and incomplete. To date, very few specimens are known with articulated skulls and none with an entire skeleton. Though many species were large with sizes approaching or potentially exceeding 10 meters, such as P. Currii, P. Saturator and P. Overtoni many species were considerably smaller in size. The type species, P. Solvayi, was the smallest, barely reaching 5 meters in length.
