Meristodonoides sp. Spine, Rush Creek


Meristodonoides sp., North TX

Cenomanian, Cretaceous

Jun, 2023


Surprisingly common in this pocket. I've found 3 fragments in a single hunt, this being the largest. I chose the genus Meristodonoides because those are the only Hybodontiformes teeth I've found so far.

So, that's a fin spine? 

Yep to the dorsal fin! To my knowledge, all Hybodont sharks have them. They may have been venomous as well. I kinda think of stone fish.
