I’ve done a bit more prep on this large fossil - which I think is a Gyrosteus - but I haven’t seen paddle shaped bones in other examples. The large bones seem to be lying perfectly on top of each other.

I would appreciate any thoughts on what part of the fish you can see and / or any other possible ID0B1C534C-FC25-41B7-90F6-1DB6A98C701C.jpeg  4BD31971-CF9F-4859-9A0A-F9511241C91E.jpeg  5ABD3C29-C79F-445A-B494-814C7ADA5BBE.jpeg  B6F099C0-B313-4E50-A00A-85D1571899C0.jpeg  6F09448E-0A7F-4B4B-9B00-B20B9B80EF3B.jpeg  A1A65194-8CD5-4442-A438-8F0159A4433D.jpeg  13C09E6E-69CC-472B-9F89-4B743A2A0072.jpeg

Thanks for the reply and ID. It’s difficult to imagine what it was like . I assume that the bone was cartilage.
