Fossil Fish from the Green River Formation in Wyoming USA. This Knightia Alta tiddler is 47 million years old and seen here as it is found naturally. A Fossilised herring! Great gift for an angler or fossil fan alike and presented here in a mini stocking to solve yet another Christmas gift dillema.
The Green River Formation is famous. Volcanic activity caused the pollution of an inland sea at this site. The sea was deprived of oxygen which then caused the death of the fish it contained. In this way, an extensive fauna of fish and land creatures from the edge of the lake were preserved. Crocodiles, birds, lizards, insects and plants have all been found. This gives a fascinating and complete view of the Eco system at the time! From the Eocene period.
We are unconsciously standing on our own history and this is your chance to own a piece of it!
We always have a good variety of sizes and range of fish, from this lil fry to monster catches. Contact us for details. You may wish to browse the rest of our site for lots of gift ideas for the whole family! Or look at Fossils in particular.
