This giant fossilised crocodile currently takes up a whole wall in our Pimlico Road gallery. This specimen was found in the Holzmaden Shale, Baden-Wurttemburg, Germany, which is world-renowned for the exceptional preservation of its fossils. Museum-quality detail is even present in the matrix surrounding the crocodile, where beautiful ammonites can be seen. The preservation of this piece is quite simply the best we’ve ever seen.
