FOSSIL FISH MURAL

THE SCIENCE

When fish die and are trapped in mud and silt, their bodies decompose, leaving only their bones. Over time, sediment builds, leaving us with these beautiful fossil fish! In this mural, we have a few species of fish swimming around, notably the striking Diplomystus dentatus, a predatory fish, now extinct and a distant relative to today's herrings. Next, we have the lone Mioplosus labracoides, also a predator, but believed to have been a solitary one. Finally, we see the little Knightia fish, also a distant relative of modern-day herrings.
