This is a 10 cm long part of an Ichthyosaur rib from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. 

As you can see its kinda damaged. Firstly it was already damaged as i found it and secondly the preparation wasnt optimal as well. Normally you prep these bones from Holzmaden with air abrasive but I only have an air pen. So I damaged it a bit further.

Neat rib there :) any associated remains?

Thank you :) No sadly there were no associated remains. But isolated bones like this one aren't that rare in Holzmaden. And they are also often quite worn ^_^

Seriously?? I thought that any vertebrate material was rare at Holzmaden!

That's good to know… ;)

Yeah they are still rare but if you know where you have to search, if you have patience and if the "right" material is laying there it's not impossible to find bones and teeth ;)
