A high-quality full-scale 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 95 cm long, 49 cm tall and 4 cm deep, and weighs 3.8 kg. The ichthyosaur itself measures 80 cm long. This replica is hand made from a strong lightweight plastic and backed with a plywood board. These replicas make fantastic display pieces that would grace any wall space and create a unique focus.
Please note: these replicas are hand made to order, so take a little longer for delivery than our other products. Typically, they take around 3-5 working days longer for delivery.
