For #FossilFriday, meet the ‘flying ichthyosaur’ at the @AlfredGillett.

This ichthyosaur is almost complete and is around 195 million years old. It was found in an old quarry in Street, Somerset. The forefins are particularly nice.

Cycles of creation & destruction govern the life of all rocks. As cliffs are battered by waves, fossils emerge after being hidden for eons to a new world. They are not immune to natures forces, re-entering the system to be recycled again. #FossilFriday #WhispersOfRock 🧵1/6
