Found this specimen on the Holderness a long time ago, I have not prepped it yet but would like a postive I.D. if possible.
I think it is from a Crocodile, the matrix it is in is very light - so could be lower jurassic - lower lias, but I do not know.
Any I.D,s welcome.
Yeh, there is definietly a vertebrae and some ribs in there. The vertebrae is the wrong shape for icthyosaur, so I think it is either plesiosaur or some kind of crocodile.
www.fossils-UK has a very simular piece from a steneosaurus from Whitby on the vertebrae page.
Thank's Dan, had a go at making it into something for the collection tonight, turned out ok, more time needed to spend on it.
The long rib is 'blue tacked' into place so you can remove it and see the vert below.
Well done tabfish. I think they could be leedsichthys bones now. They look the right shape.
It's a pitty I have only shown the partially prepped 'front' of the block because on the reverse are many different bones that need some work on them.
Thank's again Dan.
