Large temnodontosaur Ichthyosaur jaws replica

Large temnodontosaur jaws (not Platydon) Jurassic Hettangian or Sinemurian in age,(about 200MYA) part of a huge animal, (most of which was also discovered) found in Devon in 2002.
The original was prepared mechanically and with acetic acid, the teeth show exceptional preservational detail.
The morphology of the teeth is quite unlike those of Temnodontosaurus Platydon, by far the most common Temnodontosaur of this age, and may be indicative that this specimen is of an unknown or at least much rarer species.
There is a bony Fin spine, probably from a  hybodontiform shark embedded where the animals upper gum would have been in life. The beast would also have fed on belemnites and other invertebrate fauna which were abundant in the seas of the age. Overall skull size of the original specimen around 4,1/2 ft, the whole animal 20ft or so.

Replica Dimensions 37 cm x 17 cm x 8 cm.
