Caption: Cretaceous period fauna. Artwork depicting marine and land animals that existed at various stages of the Cretaceous period (144 to 65 million years ago). The aquatic animals depicted include Mosasaurus, a large mosasaur reptile (centre), and a pliosaur (Kronosaurus, green, upper left). Between these are two ichthyosaur reptiles (Ichtyosaurus sp.). A belemnite is at left (orange, left) and an ammonite (brown) at lower right. Also depicted is the plesiosaur Elasomsaurus (blue, bottom, and rearing out of the water, top). The sea turtle archelon (Archelon ischyros) is shown exiting the water onto the shore. Also seen on the shore are a group of ouranosaurus dinosaurs (Ouranosaurus nigeriensis). A shark is at upper right.
