The arrival of a replica of a Xiphactinus’ head on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, at Exploration Place is a preview of the updates that are going on at the science center. The creature is an ancient fish that lived millions of years ago in the seas covering Kansas. This replica of the creature’s head is about 9 feet wide, 10 feet long, and 9 feet tall – and it will greet visitors as they make their way to the lower level in the Explore Kansas exhibit area, which is being updated. The Explore Kansas exhibit will open on April 22. (Video by Fernando Salazar/The Wichita Eagle) fsalazar@wichitaeagle.com
