Hi 

 

Here's a small femur from the Triassic reptile Pachstropheus rhaeticus.

 

The femur is about 2 inches long and sits amongst some Triassic debris including fish teeth.

I guess when someone said "break a leg" he took it a bit too literally :D

Hi Tarquin

 

I wish I lived closer as well. It's 3 hours for me to drive there or three hours to Whitby.    

 

I need to move house or collect something different.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Here's another of a probable femur that I'm prepping. It's from an unidentified land animal from the late Triassic.
