Rare, 17.7" Fossil Stingray (Heliobatis) With Three Fish - Wyoming

This is a stunning 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 17.7" specimen is gorgeously preserved and nicely centered on a 24.2 x 15.6" slab of rock. Just check out the closeup photos to see the preserved detail. There is a trio of fossil fish (Knightia) also present on the rock near its tail.

Like almost all ray fossils available from the Green River Formation it has been inlaid into the rock. There are a few repaired cracks running through the rock but actual restoration to the fossil is pretty minimal. The rock has been backed with a board for stability of the rock and to make it easy to mount on a wall. Upon request, we can install a wall hanger on the back of the specimen.

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.
