Large, 18.7" Fossil Stingray (Heliobatis) - Wyoming

 
This is a large specimen of a rare Heliobatis radians stingray from the Green River Formation in Wyoming. These rays are one of the more rare fossils from the Green River Formation and are highly coveted by collectors for their beauty. This 18.7" specimen is gorgeously preserved and nicely centered on a 25x15.5" piece of rock.

It has then been backed with hardie board for stability and to make it easy to mount on a wall. We can install a french cleat hanging system upon request at no charge. There are several repaired cracks in the rock running the rock and some minimal restoration along the cracks. This is typical as the rays nearly always come out of the rock in multiple pieces. But unlike most specimens this one has NOT been inlaid into another rock.

Heliobatis is an extinct genus of freshwater ray primarily known from the Green River Formation in wyoming. The teeth are triangular and shaped for feeding on small fish, crustaceans, and mollusks.
