Ganolytes (Jordan, 1919)
Monterey Formation - 12 Million years old
Santa Barbara County, California, USA
Ganolytes : 6.15 in. (1 inch = 2.54 cm)
A large a well preserved Ganolytes ("ray finned fish" - Sardine) with complete scales and a wonderfully rich deep orange color. Like many found in this specific layer, the head is kicked upwards in a "death pose".
This fish is missing the end of his tail and is being offered at a discounted price.
This specimen was collected by us in July 2015, and painstakingly prepared then stabilized to prevent the scales from wearing away.
It is 100% as found and has no restoration, with our personal guarantee!
