Well.... that explains why Listracanthus elements tend to be one of the more common fossils in black shales.

 

Awesome specimen, by the way.

Very cool, Charlie!

 

Sounds like this could be a scientifically important specimen. Have you found anybody in your area who specializes in these Carboniferous chondrichthyans? Could be a paper in this. :)

 

 

 

Cheers.

Excellent find! :dinothumb: @Carl will be interested in this, and he can put you in touch with Dr. Maisey (if I recall the name correctly), who is an expert on Paleozoic sharks, if you want to go that route.

Definitely and amazing specimen, as far as I can see. I just sent this one to Dr. Maisey for his opinion. Stand by.

Oh hell yes. This animal's been a mystery for a long time. There are a few associated scrappy pieces of this thing from Bear Gulch but nothing with any clear anatomy. Thank you for ensuring this ends up being studied!

Make sure you really know where the rest of that specimen is. If possible, I'd go back and take photos of the area so you can find it again exactly in the spring when you have the time and weather permits more digging. It would be awful to misplace the rest of that cool specimen.

 

Looking forward to hearing more about this over time. I'm sure you'll keep us in the loop as much as possible.

 

 

Cheers.

I know exactly where it is, just not sure what layer it fell from. I'll have to bring a ladder. Lol

Sweet! I've got a good feeling that this could be the start of a really cool fossil story. Just like the Game of Thrones, we'll have to wait till next year to hear more. :)

 

 

Cheers.
