Colin Stevenson and the 84cm Tomistoma schlegelii skull

 

I need to say a huge thank you to Patrick Campbell at the Natural History Museum in London for allowing me access to this massive Tomistoma skull.

The skull is 84cm long, making it the largest skull known of any existing crocodilian species. I think this is a fitting skull in celebration of World Tomistoma Day.

The ruler in the middle is 30cm / 12 inches for scale.
