Product description

161-145 million years old

These fish lived in what is now Germany in the late Jurassic about 161-145 million years ago. They lived in a lagoon that was regularly closed off from the sea. The high salt content in both the water and the sediment has ensured that deceased animals could be well preserved and fossilized.

Germany

There are several limestone quarries in the Altmühltal in Germany. In the middle of this area lies the village of Solnhofen. The limestone from the area derived its name from this village. In reality, there are tens of kilometers of limestone quarries. The chance of finding fossils here yourself is not even very great. However, there are regular finds from the area due to the large scale of industrial extraction of limestone. This is mainly used for house building, sculpture or as a decorative stone.

Size

This fossil has a size of 22 x 2 x 24 cm
