Rare, 17" Fossil Stingray (Heliobatis) - 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" specimen is gorgeously preserved and nicely centered on a 19 x 13.3" slab of rock. Just check out the closeup photos to see the preserved detail.

Unlike most ray specimens available this one has NOT been inlaid into the rock. There are three repaired cracks through this rock, two of which travel through the left fin of the stingray, requiring some minor gap fill restoration at the point of breakage. 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. Otherwise, the specimen will be accompanied by a rebar 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.
