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.
