Cimolichthys Skull

  • $450.00

Cimolichthys is often referred to as the barracuda of the inland sea.  This is a near complete skull.  The skull has been flattened from the top down rather than on the side.   Teeth are visible on the bottom side.  The piece is so thin that I did not remove any more matrix from the bottom side.  Zoom into the pictures for detail.  This piece is preserved with a penetrant/stabilizer and is in the natural matrix.  The piece measures approximately 11 3/4" long at the longest point by 9".  This fossil is from the Niobrara Chalk of Western Kansas.
