This specimen of Pachycormus shows some spectacular details: the skull is uncompressed, the pectoral fins are arranged as in life, and the gill membranes are perfect.
Preparation of this specimen has enhanced the gapping mouth and exposed the teeth for display purposes; the bridge of stone in the mouth was left in place to ensure the specimens stability.
