ICHTHYOSAUR VERTEBRA SHOWING PATHOLOGY / PREDATION - KIMMERIDGE CLAY, DORSET


Brachypterygius extremus  Boulenger

A beautifully preserved 3D matrix free vertebra. At the centre on both sides are two depressed areas where the surface of the vertebra show a series of layers. This could be some sort of pathology but is more consistent with the teeth mark of a predator scavenging on the vertebra. Very interesting item.

Jurassic, Kimmeridge Clay
dredged from the Smallmouth Sands, off Weymouth harbour, Dorset
Vertebra: 7.7 x 7.5 Xx 2.9 cm
