Teleost Fish Vertebrae collected from the Eocene Bracklesham Beds in Lee on Solent, Hampshire. The Teleosts comprise 96% of extant fish species. They arose during the Triassic period and have evolved to exploit almost every aquatic environment. The Bracklesham beds in which these vertebrae were found are well known among paleontologists and fossil collectors in Britain; they have yielded over 160 different species of fish and the beds continue to be productive today despite having been pillaged by collectors for over 100 years. We supply both small and large vertebrae specimens; small sizes measure approximately 7 mm in diameter and large specimens measure approximately 20 mm. Supplied in small plastic bags with an information label.
