Apologies since this is modern versus fossil. But was my first ever experience with ray cartilage and I am excited. The vertebrae were found in different locations as were the 2 snouts I found. I also came across a ray's carcass that was intact but beginning to deteriorate. It's snout was skin covered but appeared to be the same. The vertebrae also looked identical to the ones I found. It was humped up I guess because of the drying and shrinkage of the skeleton. It had claspers so it was a male. About a foot and a half body with a long tail. The tail had hooked denticles? all along the top dorsal side curved toward the end. I was not as observant as I should have been to gather more details. I really wanted that tail! but I was unable to remove it and the body had a quite offensive smell. Also I did not have a camera so no pictures. Looking online the snout looks very much like an Atlantic guitarfish and its habitat is north Carolina and south US. Any help to confirm or point me in another direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Hi Everyone! I found this today digging in an outcropping of the San Mateo formation in Oceanside, California. I have found horse teeth at this site before. Not sure about this one, but I am wondering if it could be a hoof? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated! Thanks
I headed up to Lawrence Canyon last week and this is what I found. Looks like the area is finally being developed. Say bye bye to another interesting and productive San Diego site. In honor of the site, here are a few of my favorite finds from Lawrence Canyon. I'd encourage everyone to post their favorites too.
