Dyrosaurus Crocodile Vertebrae 1.4ft

£2,792.00 GBP

A superb example of Dyrosaurus crocodile vertebrae measuring 1.4ft, a partial section with a gastrolith stone inclusion. Presented in our classic in-house designed bronze mount. Another wonderful example of unique fossil discovery, this rare museum standard specimen, discovered in Oulad Abdoun Basin, Morocco, North Africa.

Dyrosaurus is a genus of extinct crocodylomorph that lived from the upper Cretaceous to the Eocene period, surviving the K-Pg extinction event. Dyrosaurus are linked to pholidosaurids as a clade and are defined as slender-snouted, fish-eating specialists adapted to near-shore marine habitats. The Dyrosauridae are a group of mostly marine, long-jawed, crocodile-like quadrupeds up to 6 metres long.

The fossilised vertebrae have been cleaned away from the fossil bed matrix and preserved in preparatory chemicals to conserve each bone. This work was carried partially in Morocco and completed in the UK lab, along with our bronze mount. The bone tissue is fragile and requires careful handling when being removed from its stand.

The bone tissue from this Dyrosaurus, now fossilised, is preserved exceedingly well, showing distinct, clear detail and texture. This fossil has lots of scientific attributes and forms an aesthetically pleasing sculpture display which could be a central statement fossil in a collection or used as a quirky interior design element.
