| EXPLORE THE OCEAN WHICH ONCE COVERED KANSAS
| 
| In Kansas, the Cretaceous Period, from about 135 million 
| years ago to 65 million years ago, is represented by marine 
| and estuarine deposits which are the product of a shallow 
| inland sea.  This shallow ocean was home to a variety of 
| extinct marine animals such as giant clams, rudists, crinoids, 
| squid, ammonites, numerous sharks, bony fish, turtles, 
| plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, pteranodons, and marine birds.  You 
| can explore this ocean at the Oceans of Kansas Paleontology 
| web site.
