Gorgeous, 9.2" Fossil Stingray (Heliobatis) - Wyoming

 
 
This is a stunning fossil stingray (Heliobatis) 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 9.2" specimen is gorgeously preserved and nicely centered on a 12.5 x 9.5" piece of shale. Just check out the closeup photos to see the preserved the detail. This ray has NOT been inlaid into the rock as many of them are.

Since the shale was quite thin, the rock has 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.

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.
