This is a breathtaking mural with a large and rare Phareodus encaustus (18.75 inches), two Mioplosus and one Priscacara. These fish swam in ancient Eocene lakes in Wyoming, USA, 50 million years ago. They were discovered in the famous Green River Formation, which is known to produce some of the most spectacular vertebrate fossils.
Phareodus is one of the rarer types of fish found in the Green River Formation and this prime example has phenomenal details, including wonderfully preserved teeth.
Priscacara is an extinct perch-like fish, characterized by its spines.
Mioplosus is an uncommon, extinct perch-like fish.
It took many hours of painstaking work by a professional fossil preparator to reveal the fine bones of these fossil fish from the stone. Surely, it was worth the effort to bring these ancient fish to life!
An exceptional, museum quality piece.
The slab of stone measures 41 x 36 inches
Phareodus measures 18.75 inches long
Includes a sturdy plywood backing and system to hang on a wall, in any orientation
