This is a wonderful display fossil. It is a museum quality Stingray specimen from Lincoln County, Wyoming. This is a male Heliobatis radians, one of the most sought-after fossils found in the Green River Formation. The Ray has great natural color, which contrasts beautifully with the buff-colored matrix. The amazing fossil has exceptional detail - the barbs along the tail and the long ''stingers'' are even intact and well preserved! This striking male specimen is also quite unusual in that it still has its mating graspers preserved! (see close-up photo)  The large Ray is almost perfectly centered on the rectangular matrix plate that also contains a complete Knightia eocaena fish. This is a fabulous example of a rare stingray fossil that can not only be part of a fossil collection, but also proudly displayed in your home or office.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
