CatRemarks:
This specimen was originally listed in the original paper catalogue as a Mosasaur, specimen number M.80.30.16 However, a collection card discovered along with the specimen in Drawer 459 gives this specimen the common name of "Cleopatra" and makes mention that the vertebrae could indeed be a plesiosaur. During visual examination of the specimen at the time of it's entry into the CFDC digital database, it was confirmed that this specimen is indeed a plesiosaur, and thus the Accession Number was changed to P.80.08.16
