Shonisaurus beautifully screenprinted with brown ink on creme American Apparel t-shirt.
American Apparel T-shirts are made in the USA and are 100% combed cotton. These super soft Unisex shirts follow standard Men's sizing. Our 100% cotton Next Level shirts are ethically made in South America, are generally a wee bit softer than American Apparel, and follow the same sizing.
Ichthyosaurs ranged greatly in size, from little toothy dolphin looking beasts, getting no bigger than your average labrador, to this potbellied, fifty foot long colossus known as the Shonisaurus; the second biggest ichthyosaur known today and the biggest ever found in the US. His super long, narrow snout, in addition to that enormous rib-cage, easily tells him apart from his even bigger cousin, Shastasaurus; the only other ichthyosaur bigger than him, and found far further North in Canada.
Ironically, almost all of the remains of the Shonisaurus - a true sea-monster in every definition of the word - are found in the high desert mountains of Nevada, giving the Shoni the unique honor of being Nevada's official state fossil.
