Basilosauruses are a species of primeval whale.[1]

Appearance

A basilosaurus resembles a greatly elongated whale measuring 60 feet, but with long, toothed alligator-like jaws. Inexperienced observers often confuse a basilosaurus with a sea serpent or water orm.[1]

Ecology

Basilosauruses locate prey with echolocation and vision, but sometimes mistake smaller ships for food. Basilosauruses are apex predators: a fully-grown one is only threatened by supernatural monsters like krakens, thalassic behemoths, and the largest sea serpents.[1]
