FOSSIL FISH MURAL - SMALL

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 two species of fish swimming around, notably the striking Diplomystus dentatus, a predatory fish, now extinct and a distant relative to today's herrings. We also see the little Knightia fish, also a distant relative of modern-day herrings. 

THE STORY

This large Fossil includes a 16-1/2” Diplomystus dentatus and four Knightia eocaena, two of them measuring 5", one at 5 1/2”, and the last one at 6 3/4”.
