Preserved on a block of chalk is this partial, however large, shark vertebra. Shark remains from the chalk are very rare and this is the first example that we at Fossils Direct have had for sale. A real collectors item!!
Fossils from this classic London Clay location are becoming increasingly scarse due to lack of erosion and over-burden falling on the fossiliferous beds. This is a superb three dimensional fish head that has been preserved in a hard phosphatic nodule. The fish head exhibits good skull plates as well as jaws whith teeth. A real collectors item and very sought after !! Approximately 50 million years old.
