Product description

Age: Eocene (50m years old)

Fossil site: Green river formation, Wyoming, USA

Description: this fossil comes from the world famous Laggerstatten Green river in the USA.
The site produces a large extent of soft tissue preservation as evidenced in the fish.

Mioplosus is the ancestor of the Perch and was a voracious predator. Often they can be found in the fossil record eating other fish.
It is easily identified by its elongated shape and canine-like teeth.

The preservation here is superb, with an impression of scales and the dark body is a wonderful counter point to the light matrix. During the Eocene the region was sub tropical to temperate.
 
Sympathetically framed, and a wonderful piece to hang in the home
