Hi

Here's a bit of Jurassic fish from Saltwick Bay near Whitby.

I've no idea what it is but I was thinking maybe part of the skull/palate area. It's about 6 inches by 6 inches.

Picture 1: As found

Picture 2: After some prep.

Looks like Gyrosteus mirabilis to me!

Thanks Colin

A couple of people have suggested the same. It's probably a piece from around the skull somewhere.
