Mosasaur Skeleton Installation at Lake Kirby

Breaking News! Mosasaur skeleton discovered in the sandpit in the play area! Truthfully, it was not discovered but is in the process of being installed this week and next. Do you see the head and jaws? The last image shows how a flipper and part of the tail come out of the sandpit and will provide seating for children. Mosasaurs lived in the Earth's oceans at the same time that dinosaurs walked the land, about 85 million years ago. Their fossilized teeth and bones have been found in many parts of Texas. I will share many more wonderful details as the construction progresses! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
