First up, let me say that without the paleontologist Don Miller, I could not have completed this. He provided me with an Ichthyosaur tooth, and I had only showed him this completed set days ago. I am sorry to share that he has just passed away. Here is his obituary > http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/delawareonline/obituary.aspx?n=donald-s-miller&pid=171846695 After watching Nat Geo's Sea Monsters where they declared the Cretaceous Seas to be the most dangerous of all times, as well as surfing the Oceans of Kansas website, I knew I had to create a collection of teeth for myself. This box here took me well over 3 years to compile, and is a result of not just my own work, but the efforts of many of my friends as well. From left to right, top to bottom, the creatures insides include - 1) Mosasaur (Liodon anceps) 2) Pterosaur (Siroccopteryx moroccensis) - Gary Greaser 3) Shell-eating Mosasaur (Globidens phosphaticus) 4) Terrible Crocodile (Deinosuchus rugosus) (actually much closer to an Alligator) - George Williams 5) Crow Shark (Squalicorax pristodontus) 6) "False Mosasaur" (Pachyrhizodus caninus) - Kris (KansasFossilHunter) 7) Ginsu Shark (Cretoxyrhina mantelli) - Richard Benefield (Vertman) 8) "Sabertooth Herring" (Enchodus lybicus) 9) Marine "Crocodile" (Elosuchus cherifiensis) - Veomega 10) Pliosaur (Polyptychodon sp.) - Calvin Chu 11) Ichthyosaur (Platypterygius kiprijanovi) - Don Miller 12) Giant Vampire Squid (Tusoteuthis longa) (this is not a tooth, this is its squid pen) - Kris (KansasFossilHunter) 13) "Bulldog Fish" (Xiphactinus audax) - Richard Benefield (Vertman) 14) "Nessie" (Zarafasaura oceanis) - Joe Aaronson 15) Giant Sawfish (Onchopristis numidus) (this is not a tooth, this is a rostrum tooth) - Han Yang Tan (Han. T)
