Sea Monsters In Kansas

Who’s in the mood for sea monsters? One of the noteworthy books I read in 2007 was  Oceans Of Kansas – A  Natural History of the Western Interior Sea by Michael Everhart. In it Everhart gives detailed descriptions of the creatures that inhabited the Western Interior Sea, which divided North America from about 100 millions years ago to about 69 million years ago. Some of the animals were real monsters.

Michael Everhart is a paleontologist from the University Of Kansas, and curator at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History. His latest book is titled Sea Monsters: Prehistoric Creatures of the DeepAnd his website Oceans of Kansas is definitely worth a look.

I never thought I’d actually want to go to Kansas. But how can you not love Mosasaurs?
