Plesioplatecarpus scale

Plesioplatecarpus planifrons

This is the most abundant reptilian predator found in the Cretaceous sediments of the Western Interior Seaway. Plesioplatecarpus was probably not a picky eater and it had a variety of potential prey and scavengable carcasses available. Sleek and mean were apparently the recipe for success in the Late Cretaceous waters that were the domain of Plesioplatecarpus.
