This amazing fossil of a lobster is over 110 million years old – yet it looks exactly like our lobsters today! Not only is it exceptionally well-preserved but it’s also very well-prepared. Removing the surrounding rock from a delicate specimen like this is a highly-skilled and time-consuming task. Crustaceans such as this are occasionally found in the hard sandstone lenses of the Upper Greensand.
