A Trip to the Rhaetic


Recommended Posts

Picked this big chunk of fresh rhaetic bone bed up today. It was twice the size when I found it but I was a butter fingers and dropped it accidentally and the other half disintegrated. Doh.

 

Its a nice early Christmas present. If you look carefully, there’s a whopper of a plesiosaur vert in there.

I’ll post some more pictures when I start digging into it.

Can you please point out that vert? I'm not sure if I'm seeing it.

hi Roger

 

its in the top left of the block. It’s really hard to photograph due to the contrast not being fantastic.

 

here’s a photo from the side but I’ll try and take some better ones tomorrow:

Yes, that was the area I was figuring it would be, but it's still hard to make out. I guess you're just going to have to prep it out for us to see, right? :popcorn:

Been roughing it out. Not a lot in it so far. Plenty of coprolites and some fish bits.

You can see a fish jaw and the plesiosaur vert is coming along nicely.
