Description

Details

Diplocynodon hantoniensis cervical vertebra collected from the Oligocene Hamstead Beds of Hamstead, Isle of Wight. Diplocynodon is an extinct genus of alligatoroid; they were similar in appearance to the modern caiman and they exploited European waters between the Paleocene and middle Miocene. Bones such as these provide useful information when interpreting a prehistoric environment e.g. the fauna present in the Hamstead beds suggests a predominantly freshwater environment with occasional marine influences. We have small and large specimens available, all in relatively good condition; they have retained their overall shape and some of the main morphological features can be established. Large sizes measure between 35 - 50 mm in length and small sizes 25 - 30 mm in length. Each specimen is supplied in a small plastic bag with an information label; chose the size you require from the drop down menu.
