Jurassic sea creature fossils unearthed in city quarry

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

A team of palaeontologists has uncovered parts of a Jurassic sea creature in a quarry near Peterborough.

Fossil hunter Jamie Jordan unearthed 20 sections of vertebrae belonging to a ichthyosaur called Ophthalmosaurus - thought to be about 155 million years old.

Mr Jordan, who runs the Fossils Galore museum in March, Cambridgeshire, said the bones were found in "pretty good" condition during last week's dig.

A fundraising effort has begun to raise £5,000 for ground penetration radar to find the rest of the animal's skeleton.

And people claim there's nothing left to "dig up." Pfff.
