Saurodon leanus skeleton
Description:

Saurodon was a rare eel-like fish reaching lengths of over 8 1/2 feet.

It posessed scissor-like jaws and a peculiar spiked predentary bone. This specimen is missing its head, but we have everything we need to expertly restore a lovely head onto this one. This amazing-but-headless Saurodon skeleton can be restored using one of the best skulls ever found, our "Tony" specimen.

Locality: Niobrara Chalk of Lane Co., Kansas, 85 million years old

Size: 2m (7 feet) when restored with a head

Availability: 4-6 months from date of purchase
