ICHTHYOSAUR SCLEROTIC RING  
  
Cast of an original museum specimen from the Jurassic of England

  

Lower Jurassic

About 190 million years old

  

Ichthyosaurs have the largest eye sockets of all known vertebrates.

  

Surrounding the central eyeball aperture is a cup-shaped ring of overlapping bone segments protecting the eye against the water pressure. This suggests that these marine reptiles may have hunted at great depths in the tropical Jurassic seas.

  
This replica is thought to have been produced by Stuart Baldwin's company Educational Palaeontological Reproductions in the 1990s. 
  
Presented in a new plastic display box and provided with a new descriptive label
