Now you're being unnaturally nasty. At least make it a Doberman. They can be very nice, depending how you raise them. Chihuahua's are never friendly.

Mosasaurs weren't dinosaurs, but enormous marine lizards growing up to 12 meters (40 feet) in length. They were distant relatives of modern iguanas and monitor lizards.

For once an ancient reptile being described as a lizard is actually a lizard. However mosasaurs weren't distant relatives of monitor lizards. They were either monitor lizards themselves or close relatives of monitor lizards and snakes.
