Quarried from the 18" layer of the Green River Formation, this mural contains a rare 43" Maillostues janeau. These are among the rarest fossils found in the formation. We believe that less than 15 have ever been recorded. The janeau is a short-nose gar with a short muscular jaw filled with flat grinding teeth, unlike the more common sharp-toothed long-nose gar. This is among the finest specimens we have ever seen. The long cylindrical body is covered with thick, shiny, diamond-shaped scales that contour to the dimension and shape of the body and the stone.
Supplied framed in a hand-made Wenge wood frame, backed in wood with a two-part French cleat for easy hanging.
