    The mosashark, cousin of the sakhala and zahn, is a 8-10 m long predator of the temperate oceans. It gained its name mainly from its shark-like appearance and behaviour, and many of its relatives are also often inofficially referred to as mosasharks for the same reason. This lizardwhale is in many respects similiar to the zahn, though smaller and swifter. Though their diet mostly consists of cephalopods and fish, mosharks are also known to attack small lizardwhales and other marine vertebrates.
