Rare, 16.8" Fossil Stingray (Heliobatis) - Wyoming

This is a large, 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 16.8" specimen is gorgeously preserved and nicely centered on a 21.6 x 13.8" piece of rock. Just check out the closeup photos to see the preserved the detail.

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. There are several repaired cracks running through the rock and the ray with some restoration along the repairs. 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.
