Fine English Ichtyosaurus Skull Display

Temnodontosaurus sp.

This mortality plate is an fine association of Ichthyosaur bones, including a prominent skull with numerous post-cranial bones, vertebrae and ribs. The well-preserved bony material is a pleasing chocolate brown color with rich contrast to the gray conglomerate matrix rock. The background is natural, and the specimen appears to have been stabilized but, otherwise, shows no visible signs of restoration. With a French cleat system on the verso for wall hanging. Overall measuring 154.9 x 88.3 x 8.9 cm
