Our ancient seas were full of life, from microscopic creatures to the largest of predators. Their remains are preserved today in the form of fossils. The Isle of Wight has been under water many times in the past; and extensive seas allowed our maritime monsters to navigate far and wide. Our summer display case contains the remains of a number of ocean giants typical of the kind that once swam here. Sharks and Rays, Ichthyosaurs and Mosasaurs – all with mouths of sharp teeth, and a bite to crunch through bones and ammonite shells.
