Large Ichthyosaur Plate - Lyme Regis, Dorset - Jurassic
Super large Ichthyosaur plate containing 53 associated vertebrae, bones (incl. ribs) and paddle.
The original shale on which the discovery was made proved to be too unstable to retain therefore, the bones have been cleaned, then mounted on a new piece of shale from the sale location (Lyme Regis) for better display. The bones are all from the same Ichthyosaur, and have been mounted as originally found.
Originates form Lyme Regis, UK & dates to the Lower Jurassic Period.
Plate measures: 82 cm x 18 cm x 2 cm
