A superb facility to have FUN learning about dinosaurs, watch them being preserved, and visit one of the best museum gift shops ever.  It takes a lot to make us stop and look, and we spent considerable time here.

SEA DINOSAURS
Xiphactinus audax "Sword-ray" FISH

The LARGEST bony fish that ever lived, it grew up to 18' long, distantly related to tarpon.  It had a voracious appetite, swallowed fish whole, some six feet or more in length.  There are fossils excavated showing a "fish within the fish" such as this fossil found in Kansas in 1982.  We have vertebrae of these fish for sale on Fossils Page 3
