  4. Odontopteryx Bird Bone 510mm

    Odontopteryx Gigas Toothless Bird Bone 510mm

    £962.00
    Odontopteryx False Toothed Bird Bone 510mm overall on the original fossil matrix or limestone bedrock. The Tibiotarsus leg bone prepared and cleaned making an exceptional display of the prehistoric pelagic toothless or false tooth bird. The bones of the odontopteryx were fine and slight to enable flight and the bone is no exception to those evolved parameters. An excellent collection addition of prehistoric fossils birds or Ornithology aficionados. The fossilised bone has been cleaned, prepared and stabilised in a British Laboratory to a high standard. Because of its exceptional length, this is probably part of the anatomy of a wing. This specimen long bone illustrated shows very well the wall of the thinned (for flight) bone and the medullary cavity within, where perhaps the spongey marrow would form, however, this is not yet clear from the fossil remains found to date and may never be positively identified. A great example which gives a good opportunity to study closely the pseudo tooth's anatomy. Genus: Dasornis, Odontopteryx sp, family Pelecanoidea, suborder Pelican, toothless or false toothed bird. Age: Ypresian stage. Mesozoic era, Palaeocene, early Eocene, approximately 66,000,000 to 48,000,000 years.
