-Size: 19"L x 16”W x 1&1/4”thick
-Species: Archaeopteryx lithographica (though possibly reassigned to A. siemensii)
-Notes: This beautifully cast replicated skeleton shows every detail of the original, now housed at the Natural History Museum of Berlin (giving it the moniker of “the Berlin Specimen”). This was the third specimen of Archaeopteryx discovered and is by far the best one known, beautifully displaying the feathers that make up its wings and tail. While classically known as the “first bird,” the Archaeopteryx is more than likely not part of the direct ancestry that lead to the bird lineage. The Berlin specimen is quite possibly the most famous fossil in the world. Our cast replica is made out of hydrostone, giving it the weighty feel of the original fossil. It is affixed to a wooden board with a hanger on the back and is ready to hang on the wall. Please allow up to 1 week for processing time with cast replicas as most of these items are made to order. Thank you for your understanding.
-Age: Jurassic Period, 151-146 million years ago
-Location: Solnhofen Formation, Bavaria, Germany
