Rare, 11.4" Fossil Stingray (Heliobatis) - Wyoming

This is a gorgeous fossil stingray (Heliobatis radians) 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 11.4" specimen is gorgeously preserved and nicely centered on a 19 x 13" slab of rock. Just check out the closeup photos to see the preserved detail.

This ray is natural, but has been inlaid into the rock. There are a couple of repaired cracks through the fossil with some spots of gap fill restoration where the rock chipped away during collection. The rock has been backed with a board for stability and to make it easy to mount on a wall. Upon request, we can install a wall hanger on the back of the specimen. Otherwise it will be accompanied by a metal display stand.

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.
