One of the largest and best preserved examples of a Pliosaur skull ever found in the World. Pliosaurs are the largest, scariest predator to have ever swam in the worlds oceans and this is one of the best ever found.
Discovered eroding out of a landslide near Weymouth by local fossil collector Kevan Scheehan between 2004 and 2008, the specimen was acquired with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund 'Collecting Cultures' programme under a project called Jurassic Life lead my the Dorset Museum Service and is now on display in the geology gallery of the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester.
Sorry; not the best gigapan as there is camera shake in the images; the floor, the camera setup, me, all of those things need to be sorted out.........!
