Our baby Ichthyosaur

The Watery World of the Ichthyosaur

A mini exhibition in the Geology Gallery

Exhibited from Tuesday 23 May - Sunday 9 July, 2017

Visit our new mini-exhibition to explore the watery world of the Ichthyosaur!

Taking our very own fossil baby Ichthyosaur, freshly cleaned and conserved, as its centrepiece, this temporary display will allow you to explore the underwater environment that this creature lived in. Discover what an Ichthyosaur ate for lunch, as well as the other creatures and plant life that shared its watery world. With artistic representations of how the Ichthyosaur lived around 190 million years ago, plus the fossilised remains of the Ichthyosaur and its contemporaries this exhibition is not to be missed.

Supported by the The Curry Fund of the Geologists Association
