The Cretaceous

Fossil
Did you know what this fossil was?


This fossil is a fin spine from a shark that lived in the sea about 140 million years ago. This specimen was found near Swanage in Dorset.

Sharks' skeletons are not made from bone and do not fossilize well, but you can find their fin spines and teeth more easily.
