This is a sweet little Tortoise Carapace fossil shell from the prehistoric badlands.  The name "Stylemys" means "pillar turtle" and this genus was discovered first by Dr. Joseph Leidy in 1851.  These cute small Tortoise fossils are difficult to find preserved, due to their size.  The flat underside of a tortoise is called the plastron. There is about 20% restoration on the upper back end of the carapace, which appears slightly glossy in the pictures above.  Actual Specimen Pictured & Guaranteed Authentic.

Size: 3.20" W x 3.42" L x 1.82" Height
