Tail of Mosasaurus - length: approx. 45 cm
71.3 - 25 million years ago - Netherlands

Mosasaurus, also known as Meuse lizard, is a genus of the family of Mosasauridae, a group of extinct dinosaurs that lived in the sea. The first fossil remains were found near Maastricht in the Sint-Pietersberg, which is on the banks of the Meuse River (Latin: Mosa), and Mosasaurus was named after the river. The species from the genus lived in the Maastrichtian age of the Cretaceous, 71.3 to 65.4 million years ago.

The tail is beautiful in stone, and at the bottom fortified with plaster work, so everything is beautifully preserved.
Length approx. 45 cm.
As a bonus there is a tooth, which might turn out to be something the mosasaurus won or lost in a fight. This makes it an even more valuable item.
