Mesosaur Fossil

Posted by Picasa
This Mesosaur (Mosasaur) is the fossil of a marine lizard. They may be the ancestors of snakes. At any rate some grew very large and were formidable predators with their many huge teeth. This is a small one and thus not so spooky. It is beautifully preserved so that most of the bony articulations are visible. This is another treasure from the Tellus Museum.
