Introducing Sisyphus, our brand new Ichthyosaur!

DSC08119 DSC08120 DSC08118Sisyphus is an ichthyosaur collected by Howard Turner from the beach at Port Mulgrave, near Whitby.

This amazing specimen is named by Howard after the ancient Greek legend of the man who was punished by the Gods and was cursed for eternity to roll a boulder up a mountain. Howard felt an affinity with this after dragging the fossil back to his car before months of delicate preparation.

It is an amazing addition to the collection, which I hope to put on display very soon.
