Prehistoric Xiphactinus Audex Fish Fossil Unveiling
April 21
1:00 pm
Environmental Education, Science and Technology Building

Visitors to the University of North Texas’ Environmental Education, Science and Technology Building will be able to see a 250-pound fossil of the head of the prehistoric Xiphactinus (pronounced Zie-fak-tin-nuz) Audex fish, a menacing predator that lived between 100 and 65 million years ago, as well as a fossil of the creature’s right flipper. The fossils were identified as Xiphactinus by Dr. George Maxey, UNT lecturer in geography and director of the university’s Meteorite, Rock, Mineral and Fossil Identification Lab. Discovered in late 2010 by Denton County resident Paul Jones and his daughter Maggie, the Xiphactinus fossils will be on display on the first floor of the EESAT Building beginning April 21. An unveiling of the fossils will take place at 1 p.m. in the building, with the Joneses expected to attend. The fossils will be on display for a year in the EESAT Building.

For more information on the Meteorite, Rock, Mineral and Fossil Identification Lab, contact Maxey at 940-565-2372.
