TEREBRATULID SHOWING INJURY - JURASSIC, OXFORDSHIRE.


Epithyris oxonica Arkell.

Fine complete specimen, matrix free. Towards the apex on one valve there is an irregular roughly circular area of depressed shell approx. 0.6 x 0.6 cm. The fact that the shell has been depressed downwards suggests a bite from a predator. The shape and size of the tooth mark would suggest a crocodile, a fish or a shark. Brachiopods would not normally be on the menu for crocodiles so it is almost certain to be a fish / shark. Interesting example.

Jurassic, Bathonian, Great Oolite Series, White Limestone.
Woodeaton, Oxfordshire.

Specimen : 4.3 x 4 x 2 cm.
