Prehistoric Fish are early fish that are known only from fossil records. They are the earliest known vertebrates, and include the fish that lived through the Cambrian to the Quaternary Periods. The study of prehistoric fish is called paleoichthyology. Fish have played, and continue to play, a vital role throughout the seas & waterways of our planet, providing larger sea, land & sky creatures an abundant food source for their survival. Fish fossils are extremely common and as several species of fish were schooling fish it is not uncommon for fossil fish to still be preserved in their shoals, with some specimens even being preserved on top of each other!

ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT unique specimen you will receive. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device.
