Hunter of the Prairie Sea exhibit featuring the skeleton of a tylosaurus

Now at the Saskatoon WDM: a replica of a Tylosaurus (TIE-low-SORE-us) fossil found on the shore of Lake Diefenbaker. 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.
