Replica Furo philpotae (Agassiz) fossil fish
Furophilpotae (Agassiz). The original fossil of this large and extremely well-preserved fish was found by Keith Hackett and Mary Coates on 21st March 2007 in the Blue Lias on the foreshore east of Lyme Regis. This is one of the largest and most complete specimens to have been discovered in England. It was prepared by Chris Moore and Tracey Barclay. Since its discovery, it has been on temporary display both at the Charmouth Heritage Centre and at Lyme Regis Museum, so this specimen has never moved more than four miles from the spot where it died nearly 200 million years ago. Mary and Keith hope that this specimen will form part of a local permanent exhibition of fossils in the near future.
The replica of this fish measures approximately 87 cm in length.
It is light in weight and suitable for wall hanging or shelf display.
Please note that the volumetric weight that is calculated for shipping does not represent the actual weight of the replica. This replica is hand made from a strong lightweight plastic and backed with a plywood board.
