FOSSIL FISH

52 million years old

Green River Formation, Wyoming, U.S.A.

A good example of a primitive, herring-like fish beautifully preserved in the fine-grained limestone known as the Fossil Butte Member, part of the Green River Formation.

These remarkable fossil fish are found in quarries along the present-day Green River in Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah.  The limestone was formed at the bottom of a lake that existed in the Eocene period, when this part of the U.S.A. had a wet, tropical climate.
