PLIOSAUR VERTEBRA SHOWING TEETH MARKS. - JURASSIC, OXFORDSHIRE.


Pliosaur gen. et sp. indet.

Fine complete caudal vertebra from a large predator marine reptile. Along the edge of the vertebra on one surface are a series of parallel grooves. These are the teeth marks of another predator. There are several possible candidates including another Pliosaur, a Plesiosaur, an Ichthyosaur, or crocodile and sharks. From the shape size and length of the teeth marks my money is on a scavenging crocodile of which there were many in the Kimmeridgian waters. Lovely example.

Jurassic, Kimmeridge Clay.
Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

Vertebra : 7 x 5.4 x 2.6 cm.
