95 cm Ichthyosaur Communis Replica
Replica Fossil Ichthyosaur Communis
Natural Selection Fossils is proud to introduce two stunning new replicas soon to be added to its range. The first of these is this high-quality replica of a perfect juvenile ichthyosaur of the species Ichthyosaurus communis found in 2017 in the Blue Lias of Lyme Regis.
This specimen is exceptionally complete and includes perfect front and back limbs (paddles), which is very hard to find on these specimens. The original fossil took over 100 hours to painstakingly prepare from the rock. The whole piece measures 95cm long by 51 cm tall and the ichthyosaur itself measures 80 cm long.
It weighs approximately 4 kg. This replica is hand made from a strong lightweight plastic and backed with a plywood board. These replicas make fantastic display pieces that grace any wall space and create a unique focus.
Please note that the volumetric weight that is calculated for shipping does not represent the actual weight of the replica.
