Something Exciting From Manitoba!

And its dead!. Here's more information on Xiphactinus from Dan Varner's wonderful Oceans of Kansas website. I also recommend highly the book.
Coolest bit: the fossil described in the news report is chewing on one of these.
And have I mentioned that "Manitoba" is a First Nations word meaning "Kingdom of the black-flies"?
