 ORGAN CAVE, WVNational  Historic & Natural Landmark  

 

Organ Cave is proud to announce a significant find in the science and Creation world. Fossils of a shark fin spine have been found in Organ Cave, a National  Landmark of Historic Places and a National Natural Landmark, in Greenbrier county West Virginia. These fossils were found in 2003 by Janie Morgan while exploring the cave. These fossils were photographed by Carolyn Lehrke of Lewisburg, WV. The fossils were identified by The National Park Service paleontologist, Vince Santucci. This is a very rare find. To our knowledge, no other cave in West Virginia has reported a shark fossil. Even though these fossils were found in 2003, they were not identified until June 10, 2014. According to the paleontologist, this fossil is of museum quality. We also want to thank Carolyn Davis of the National Park Service for her visit and putting this all together.
We do believe there will be more to come. Organ Cave has a lot of secrets yet to be uncovered.

 

 

This is the latest find in the cave by Phyllis Jones. We are waiting to hear from the paleontologist to know what type of tooth this is. It was found early August of 2015

Fred Grady from the Smithsonian says that from  the photos it appears to be a bison premolar.
