Inscription.  Did you know that dinosaurs once lived in Oklahoma? A long time ago there were different plants and animals all over the state. One of the animals was the Saurophaganax Maximus, which roughly means "ruler of the lizard eaters." It is now the state fossil! A skeleton, found in the 1930s in Cimarron County, can be seen in the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History. How would you like to look out your window and see a dinosaur? How would you like to discover a dinosaur fossil in your back yard?
