This replica is a Platecarpus ictericus skull. The original fossil was found in the Late Cretaceous deposits of the Niobrara Formation of Western Kansas. The skull belonged to a creature that must have been about 12 feet in total length. Of the three genera of mosasaurs most commonly found in the Kansas chalk (Platecarpus, Clidastes, and Tylosaurus), Platecarpus is the best known. Feeding primarily on fish and invertebrates, Platecarpus was one of the dominant predators of the Western Interior Seaway.
