I have a long story about a hike out as I was not prepared for such that I will spare you from,

I’ve got time (and virtual popcorn!):popcorn:

picture isn’t working for me but any mosasaur jaw would be amazing to me, therefore I’m sure I’ll be blown away by what you’ve described!

Try to reduce the size of the photo to less than 1 MB. 

Fascinating stuff, can't wait for the next episode. :)

There is more.  I think maybe about 6 feet of verts and 50% of the skull....  If there is more than that, then hasn't shown itself yet.

Thanks for reminding me why I go hunting!  Next time you get "skunked" you just need to look at your prize to realize it is all part of the deal (and you are winning!).

It was pretty exciting.  It really is the icing n the cake for NSR hunters.  Always was teeth in the jaw.  These were all broken off, but got them safely restored.  The river claimed some of course.

Yeah but you got more than teeth in jaw. Associated verts as well. Are you absolutely sure you got it all? Because if I was you I would keep going back until I was 100% sure I had it all. Then I would go back a couple more times to see if the was any other goodies in the general vicinity.
