A vertebra of belonging to a plesiosaur. This specimen is of Kimmeridgian age, approximately 152 to 157 Mya in the Jurassic period and was collected in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK. Plesiosaurs were marine reptiles which predominantly lived during the Jurassic period. Characteristically defined by their long necks and flippers, this specimen comes from one of plesiosaur's four long flippers. This vertebra is 90 x 70 x 50 mm and weighs 538 grams. It's size and overall definition makes it a perfect addition to a fossil collection - particularly those centred around marine reptiles and the Jurassic. The bone should also appeal to a palaeontologist who wishes to analyse bone fragments. This particular specimen allows acute analysis of the interior structure of the spine as well as a rough, genuine texture to gauge external processes.Comes supplied in a 4" x 3" white card tray with an information card detailing its age and locality.
