An articulated fossil of a small carnivorous marine reptile identified as a juvenile Keichousaurus hui measuring between 10 and 12 inches in gross length along the spinal column and dating to the Triassic Period (210 - 245 million years ago). Keichousaurus hui was first identified in Guizhou province, China in 1957 and has since been found in many locations and in intact state such as this example. The fossil is exposed from top down in a matrix of sedimentary, slate-like, mixed volcanic ash and silt material. There are two natural filled seams through the rock and fossil, and one repaired break through the tail. The reverse of the 11-1/2 by 8-1/4 inch matrix slab has remnant mounting epoxy. The fossil is in good condition
