  7. 5.82 in Pipefish Fossil - New Locality - California
    $65.00
    Syngnathus avus (Jordan & Gilbert, 1919) Extinct Marine Pipefish Late Monterey Formation Late Miocene Age : 8 - 5 million years ago Santa Barbara County, California, USA Pipefish : 5.82 in. longest length Slab : 8.10 x 7.25 in. 1 inch = 2.54 cm This plate if from a NEW LOCALITY we discovered just this year in May of 2016. These are just a few of the offerings we will be making from this new site as most specimens are still being prepared as our excavations continue. What makes this new locality for these pipefish fossils, are the prevalence of infant pipefish surrounding the adult males. Were the fish brooding and expelled when buried, or was this a pipefish nursery? Hopefully more of these questions are answered as we continue to discover more plates as this! A noticeable difference is the coloration of the shale and beautiful black dendrites covering many of the slabs as well as the preservation of the fish in the thin layers of chert. Learn More
