14" Gorgeous Fossil Stingray (Heliobatis) - Wyoming

 
 
This is a very nice 14" long fossil stingray (Heliobatis radians) from the Green River Formation in Wyoming. These rays are one of the more rare fossils from the Green River and are highly coveted by collectors for their beauty.

The preservation on this ray is particularly nice. The only restoration is on the tip of the tail and a small area along a repaired crack running through the body. Because the shale it was found on is quite thin, it has been backed with wood for stability. It comes with a display stand or we can added wall mounting hardware upon request.

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.
