XENACANTHUS. Isn't she Beautiful!
This near complete Mid Triassic Xenacanth from the Sydney Basin was found a number of years ago and preparations are being made to describe her and a number of her friends. An interesting note on Xenacanths from this locality, is the lack of spines preserved. Only one specimen I have found so far has revealed this spine that protrudes from the back of the head.
