Collection: Otter Sandstone

Collection created by: hollymorgenrothramm

The Otter Sandstone is an internationally important source of Triassic fossils. These rocks are 245 – 235 million years old and form some areas of the exposed red cliffs around Sidmouth and Ladram bay. Although finding fossils in these cliffs is far less common than from the cliffs at Lyme Regis and Charmouth, early reptiles, reptile-like animals, fish and amphibians have been found.
