A small, tail-section of vertebra belonging to an unknown species of pliosaur – likely Liopleurodon. Specimen measures 60 mm in diameter and is 30 mm in depth. This particular specimen was recovered from the kimmeridgian clay beds of Abingdon in Oxfordshire, UK. The kimmeridgian was a stage during the mid Jurassic, making this specimen aged 157 – 152 M.a. Pliosaurs typically had a large head, a short neck and tail, and long, paddle-shaped limbs. The vertebral central of the neck are compressed front to back, and are flat faced, with facets that act as rib articulations. the teeth which rise from sockets are long and bow – shape, with some longitudinal ribbing. Large animals had heads measuring some 3 m in length and held 30 cm long teeth. Pliosaurs ate fish and cephalopods such as belemnites which abounded during the Jurassic. This specimen is in excellent condition, and provides excellent value for those interested in acquiring a great specimen at a small price. Weighing 166 grams, it comes supplied in a 3″ x 2″ white card tray with an information label.
