Well preserved right paw 3.7 cm, the left toe is perfect. The right leg is very detailed, the vertebral column is evident, and part of tail is present. The left leg is complete, right leg is partially preserved. The item was found broken into four pieces and re-glued. Transparent glue was put on the fossil in order to better protect it.
