INFO SHEET:

Fossilized Fish
Amazing fish skeleton fossilized in limestone, cut into a small tile. 

 

Trilobite Fossil on Matrix
Very cool fossilized Trilobite perched on a matrix. Trilobites are a group of extinct marine arthropods that form the class Trilobita. Trilobites form one of the earliest-known groups of arthropods. They evolved profound adaptations that place them among the most successful of all early animals. Trilobite means ‘three lobes’ referring to the three lobes of their body. 

 

Polished Orthoceras Fossil

The body of the polished Orthoceras Point is raised on a rounded flat base. The extinct Orthoceras are extinct “straight-shelled” cephalopods that lived during the Upper Devonian period around 370 million years ago. They lived inside of their shell, had tentacles they could use to grab food and used jet propulsion, squirting water to move. 

 

Fossilised Enchodus Fang

This extinct salmonid/ray-finned predator had large ‘fangs’ at the front of the upper and lower jaws as well as on the palatine bones, leading to the nickname amongst fossil hunters and paleo ichthyologists of “the saber-toothed herring”. These fangs, along with a long sleek body and large eyes, suggest Enchodus was a predator, and could grow to be two metres long. Species of Enchodus flourished during the Late Cretaceous, and survived the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, persisting into the late Eocene. 

 

Otodus Obliquus Shark Vertebrae Fossil

This vertebra comes from the Otodus Obliquus, an ancient Mackerel shark, cousin to the famous Megalodon. The Otodus Obliquus lived from the Paleocene to the Eocene time period, roughly 40 to 60 million years ago. 

 

Mosasaurs Lizard Fang Fossil

Measuring up to 10m in length, the carnivorous Mosasaur was a gigantic aquatic lizard that roamed our planet more than 66 million years ago. 

 

Coprolite Fossil

Quite literally fossilized DINOSAUR POOP! A unique and quirky addition to any fossil collection, Coprolites are the fossilized droppings of animals that lived millions of years ago. These trace fossils help palaeontologists gather evidence around animal diets and behaviours.
