Cretoxyrhina mantelli

TPI’s Cretoxyrhina is cast from the largest complete fossil shark specimen on record. Very similiar to today’s Great White shark, only the largest of mosasaurs would have been a match for this vicious mega-predator of the Western Interior Seaway. Sometimes called the “Ginsu shark” a number of marine reptile bones have been found with Cretoxyrhina teeth embedded in them.
