Doesn't look like ichthyosaur. Needs some preparation to be sure.

Hi

It is hard to tell but it looks like the back part of an ichthyosaur jaw and the bottom of the back of the skull. You can see what look like ichthyosaur teeth scattered about.

Hi

Nice find, I would agree with Nick it certainly looks like it could be the base of the skull and partial jaw of an ichthyosaus, I would definitely look at getting this prepped.

Never mind the mud or the wind or tides its all part of the fun.

Yeah I can see teeth too and agree that it looks to be skull elements. Might be squashed at an unusual angle but it just doesn't look like ichy. Deffo needs some prep work to be sure.

From what I can see those teeth do look like Ichthyosaur, whole thing looks brittle.

Thanks all.  Exiting.  I'll arrange for it to be prepped.  Happy New Year.

There's a piece on there that looks almost fin spine like,(last pic bottom, right of centre).
To the right of the bone.
