Clidastes liodontus

Probably a shallow diver, Clidastes was the smallest of the three primary mosasaur genera of the Niobrara Chalk. It possessed a proportionately longer torso and shorter tail than either Platecarpus or Tylosaurus. Our specimen has one of the finest skulls in existence and the full sternal cartilage plates and straps have been restored. A beautiful life restoration model is also available.
