The following listing is an Ichthyosaur's vertebrae bone from Weymouth Jurassic coast UK. Size: 90 x 72 x 39mm This is 100% genuine fossil. A marine reptile fossil. Details of the bone cells can still be seen clearly on the surface. Ichthyosaurs (meaning 'fish lizard') were large marine reptiles that first appeared 250 million years ago, with at least one species surviving until round 90 million years ago where they became extinct for as yet unclear reasons! It is believed they evolved from a group of terrestrial reptiles during the early Triassic period, initially looking rather like lizards with fins. The first complete fossil specimen was found by, the now famously known, Mary Anning in 1811 in Lyme Regis, UK. Tags: prehistoric fossil british united kingdom fish lizard science
