Pliosaur vertebra fossil found in the Kimmeridgian beds of Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK. The species has been determined as Pliosuarus Brachyspondylus, which was the first species of pliosaur categorised by English palaeontologist Richard Owen in 1839. Named for the series of short vertebra discovered, these marine reptiles had four long flipper-like fins which it used to propel themselves through the oceans, a short neck and long head lined with numerous sharp teeth and were known to have grown up to 60 ft in length. This specimen of a vertebra is fairly large, measuring 11 x 9 x 3.5 cm in size, it displays the text book concave shape of vertbrae, first noted by Owen and comes supplied with a card tray and an information label, an excellent piece, not just for serious collectors, but also for educational purposes.
