CatRemarks:
Bird fossil was unknown to be associated with M.79.02.12 until fossil preparation occured on the mosasaur specimen in early 2010. The bird tibiotarsus was discovered inside a plaster jacket containing mosasaur vertebrae from M.79.02.12. The tibiotarsus was discovered by CFDC volunteer preparator Gord Bennett, who also prepared this tibiotarsus.
