TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The flying pteranodon and the sea-roaming tylosaurus are now the official fossils of Kansas.

Gov. Sam Brownback's said Monday the bill designating the prehistoric creatures as official state symbols was one of 10 signed Friday by the governor.

The fossils are remnants of the massive creatures that roamed much of western Kansas when it was a vast ocean millions of years ago. The region remains rich with fossils that attract researchers and tourists.

Other bills signed by Brownback include the expansion of the state's no-call list to add mobile devices to those protected against unwanted calls from telemarketers.

The governor has signed 24 bills since the start of the 2014 legislative session in January.
