Perfect for educational display or practicing your fossil preparation skills, these are THREE concretion large fish fossils from the Santana Formation, dating back to the last era of the dinosaurs. It looks like two may possibly be Cladocyclus (one is for sure). The third concretion, it is hard to say at this stage in preparing. They have all been partially prepared and glued. Intact delivery is not guaranteed as these are not finished and will likely need to be re-glued anyway. Practice your air scribe skills or use for teaching fossil preparation to students or for display. Unprepared specimens like these are not common AND THE PRICE IS RIGHT! Don't expect complete quality fish fossils from these. They are mainly for practice but will yield some nice partial specimens at worse.
These are large and heavy so shipping will be a factor but we priced them accordingly to take that into account.
Cladocyclus is a member of the ICTHYODECTIFORMS, a group of large predatory extinct fish that lived in marine environments from the Late Jurassic through the Cretaceous Period. Many had large teeth and all were effective hunters of other fish including those from their own group. Cladocyclus is one of the longest and most impressive fish from the Santana Formation.
