These dinosaur vertebrae fossils belonged to one of two species of sauropod, large, heavy four legged long necked dinosaurs, Ischyrosaurus or Cetiosaurus which lived during the Jurassic period over 150 million years ago. Found in Abingdon, Oxfordshire in the UK. The samples exhibit the expected disc like design with concave surfaces where other tissue would have been. Excellent for serious fossil collectors.
Sauropods were the largest land animals to ever live. They are characterised by their size, long necks and long tails. These specimens, which were found in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK are individual vertebra belonging to an unknown species (likely to be Cetiosaurus or Ischyrosaurus) from the Kimmeridgian stage of the Jurassic Period. An essential part to any fossil collection, these bone specimens allow acute analysis of the interior bone structure and provide rough genuine texture to the fossil. They are available in multiple sizes (3" x 3", 4" x 3" and 5" x 3.5") and come supplied with card trays and information cards.
