Organ Cave is excited to announce a significant find for the science 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 discovered in 2003 by owner Janie Morgan while exploring the cave and photographed by Carolyn Lehrke of Lewisburg, WV. This find was identified by our 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! These fossils were found in 2003, but not identified until June 10, 2014. According to the paleontologist, this fossil is of exceptional museum quality. We want to thank Carolyn Davis of the National Park Service for her visit and getting this together for us. Organ Cave has a lot of wonders yet to be uncovered.

 

 

This is the latest find 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.
