Runswick fossil icthyosaur skull.

This one - a juvenile from the size - is in Whitby Museum, which has a superb collection of local Jurassic fossils, many from Runswick Bay. This shows how hard it is for the untrained eye to pick out a fossil beyond the obvious ammonites and belemnites. We're getting back to the living stuff this week.
