This section is dedicated to the more extraordinary way that sharks are sometimes preserved in the London Clay.
Unusually preserved Otodus obliquus encased inside a small septarian nodule. The tip of the blade only was visble when found. It is rare to find teeth in this way, usually they are found free of matrix amongst the pyrite and shingle accumulations on the beach
A unique head and spinal column of Carcharias hopei
Another Carcharias hopei nodule with skin definition and a tooth on the surface
Striatolamia macrota jaw with scattered teeth, again, a unique fossil
Shark vertebra
Coprolites? some authorities believe that this may be the fossilised spiral gut tract with the contents in place
