My neighbor found this skull on the beach in half moon bay California. We don't have a clue as to what animal it belongs to. We assume it is some type of fish and would appreciate your help. Thanks! D

Hi Douglas,

this is a Skate skull - nicely preserved! I'm afraid I can't tell you the species as I'm not familiar enough with the variation in the group, but it looks like one of the ones in the genus Raja.
