A gorgeous ichthyosaur tail fin with bones and skin. Before the discovery of ichthyosaurs with I preserved skin, many collectors thought that the downward pointing tail was broken so they, uh, fixed it by straightening it out Only after exceptional ichthyosaurs like this one were found did people realise the base of the tail formed a fin, called a fluke. This specimen is from the Jurassic of Holzmaden, Germany, and is on display at the Natural History Museurr in London meme
