Chelosphargis advena

The smallest member of TPI’s turtle selection, this specimen of Chelosphargis fits on a saucer and represents a rare, well-preserved juvenile. This small turtle, until now, has been known mostly from shark-shredded shell fragments. Our specimen features an excellent skull and can fit on even the most crowded fossil-enthusiast’s desk.
