Following on the Ocean Theme

No.  No surfers today.  But equally important--the vast, indexed, and comprehensive Oceans of Kansas site.  Scroll to the bottom for a site index that gives insight into such things as mososaur pathology and (a personal favorite of mine) the giant fish/not-quite shark Xiphactinus audax.  I would love it if only for the fact that its name begins with X.  But I also love the parable of gluttony exemplified by several "fish within a fish" fossils with Xiphactinus as the chief player.
