Nicknamed ‘Omācīw,’ which means hunter in Cree, this creature is more than 9.75 metres (32 feet) long! It was discovered along the south shore of Lake Diefenbaker in 1994. In addition to the tylosaur, the exhibit introduces visitors to the marine environment that existed in Saskatchewan 70 million years ago.
