Inaccurate paleoart.jpg This paleontological restoration is inaccurate, or its accuracy is disputed.

Reason: The head of Elasmosaurus was erroneously placed by Cope on the "short end" now known to be the tail. The mosasaur has a long neck, and the Dryptosaurus has too many fingers, a too small head, and is in a "tripod-pose".
