Chirognathus sp.


Chirognathus (Conodont)

Harding Sandstone, Canyon City, CO, USA

The "golden conodonts" from the Harding Sandstone. Conodont elements may have functioned as teeth similar to ours (though evolving independently of what would later become teeth in other vertebrates), or may have functioned as a filter apparatus.
