Mosasaur Sand Pit- Plastic Shovels

Please use plastic shovels if you decide to dig in the Mosasaur Sand Pit to find the skeleton. Metal shovels will cause damage to the skeleton which is made from kiln fired clay. Please spread the word to your family and friends to please do the same. We will be putting some signs up soon to warn would be paleontologists to dig with plastic tools! Notice that I did not say "Dinosaur Sand Pit" because Mosasaurs are not dinosaurs but ancient marine reptiles. Thank you for caring for the Kirby Mosasaur! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
