Here is a swimming Triassic acquatic reptile nicely preserved. Size of the reptile is about 22,5cm if outstretched, on a 17x13,5 cm matrix.
The white lines you see running through the matrix are calcite crystals, typical from this site.
The fossil is original, as a proof of its authenticity you can see in cross section the typical bone honeycomb structure. The neck is curved in this typical pose due to post mortem muscular contraction, many specimens are found in this pose.
It is an adult speciment preserved on its ventral side. Lower jaw of the skull is well visible as well a few remains of the small teeth, also occipital bone and other cranial bones are exposed.
