DINO-A-DAY #93: Elasmosaurus

HAPPY NEW YEAR!


Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Elasmosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: e-LAS-mo-SAWR-uhs
ORDER: Plesiosauria
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Kansas, 1868
FUN FACT: Elasmosaurus is featured prominently in the 2005 graphic novel “Bone Sharps, Cowboys, and Thunder Lizards.” I would say more about it, but you’d be better off purchasing the graphic novel and then buying a few copies for your friends.
