Silvisaurus: A Kansas Dinosaur

While most of Kansas was covered by a shallow sea 110 million years ago, dense forests along the eastern coast were home to the dinosaur Silvisaurus. This exhibit highlights Silvisaurus condrayi, the most complete armored dinosaur that has been found in Kansas and features touchable casts and fossils, and a life-size illustration. In 2023, the dinosaur was designated the official state land fossil by the Kansas state legislature.
