COLLECTION OF 5 ICHTHYOSAUR TAIL VERTEBRAE FROM LYME REGIS


Ichthyosaurus communis  De la Beche & Conybeare.

Ichthyosaurs had long tails with a characteristic downwards 'kink' to the lower lobe of the tail fin. The rapid side to side movement of the tail gave the Ichthyosaurs forward propulsion. All five of these vertebrae are complete and matrix free. Neat little collection all from the beach at Church Cliff Bay, Lyme Regis.

Jurassic, Lower Sinemurian.
Church Cliff Bay, Lyme Regis, Dorset.

largest vertebra :  2.7 x 2.4  x 1 cm.



Our Price: £38.00
