Click to enlarge   Name Temnodontosaurus platyodon (Massive specimen)
  ref VERT924
  Ths tooth root was shown to the vertebrate curators in the NHM in London in the early 1980's and they said it was one of the largest tooth roots they had ever seen!! The specimen itself was discovered in soft clay in 1967 and has amazing detail and colouration. Temnodontosaurus was the largest of the Ichthyosaurs, growing to lengths of around forty five feet long. Their eye sockets could grow up to 10.4" across. This particular specimen, if it had its crown, would have been around 5" long. A truly massive marine reptile which roamed the seas around 200 million years ago. One for the collector of one off Ichthyosaurus specimens.
