Decoratieve fossiele baarsachtige vis - op kalksteen matrix tegel - Priscacara serrata

Omschrijving
Decoratieve fossiele baarsachtige vis - op kalksteen matrix tegel - Priscacara serrata
Eocene - Wyoming

I am offering a Priscacara serrata fossil fish on a limestone tile. The fossil fish has been quarried in a private quarry located in Lincoln County, Wyoming and is original to the stone. The Eocene age Limestone sediments of the Fossil Butte Member of the Green River Formation are world renowned for the quality and diversity of the entombed fauna. This specimen is a Priscacara serrata and is related to the modern Bass. Even the imprint of the flesh is there, so this fish escaped about 50 million years ago predation, rotting and bioturbation and could fossilize very well.
This beautiful fish measures 5 3/4 inches on limestone matrix measuring 5 1/2 x 6 1/8 x 1/4 inches and weighs 8 oz.

This specimen has been carefully prepared in the lab of the quarry owner.
