From this hard phosphatic nodule has been preserved the cast of the inner skull. The detail throughout the specimen is wonderful and very ornate. A really interesting piece and perhaps one to do a careful study of.
Many hours of preparation have gone into this specimen to reveal these large bony fish tail fins. This must have been off a very large fish that lived some 50 million years ago. A lovely collectors item, one for the drawers.
Preserved in a hard phosphatic nodule is this partial fish skull showing the underneath of the skull(throat). The detail throughout the specimen is very fine. Sheppey fossils are highly collected and this would make an ideal study specimen.
