Hi F.A,
Is that a neural arch attached to a centrum at 12 o'clock?

That came out rather well Richard. re. your vert with  neural it's more likely to be scavenging rather than predation.

At work I have to make a lot of sacrifices.

Thanks pete  (this is the one i mentioned in dec northside on P.M) ,yes scavenging is a more fitting term that's the one!  not sounding ungrateful for the find but had to allow a fracture up through cluster of verts to part and bond back together,strengthen reverse side, unstable bone ichthy verts verses hard matrix lots of air grinding.....i think most who prep may get the "didnt enjoy this one"

Fantastic find and prep job Richard!  Very interesting.  Can I see shark fin spines or are they ribs or something else?  Verts look great too

matthew a few things exposed, centre wise correct shark fin spines, skinny bit of rib lower left, a few lumps of bone if not verts and severnichthys jaw next to vert cluster
its got appeal... keep safe shame our fossil trips are scuppered i'm lucky i can walk to cliff with dogs daily exercise and look at a pebble at least. lol
