Finding remains of a Toxochelys turtle in the Smoky hill chalk of Kansas is a very rare find. This makes this piece exceptional as it includes a big part of the skull, some limb bones, scutes and even a claw.
Part of the skull has been prepared from both sides. The chalk matrix has been solidified and the whole has been mounted on a custom made stand.
Very rare Kansas chalk fossil.
Will be shipped by certified mail.
