Mesozoic marine reptiles were probably much slower than modern toothed whales the diversification of fast, agile teleost fish in the cretaceous may have therefore contributed to the decline of the marine reptiles.

Mesozoic marine ecosystems were dominated by several clades of reptiles, including sauropterygians, ichthyosaurs, crocodylomorphs, turtles, and mosasaurs, that repeatedly invaded ocean ecosystems.
