Rare Fossil Garfish, United States. Preserved Scales. 55 Million Years Old.

About

An extremely rare statement in the finest preservation yet discovered, the Garfish is a pelagic predator whose ancient lineage closer resembles land animals than fish due to a selection of its genes being known to initiate the development of paws or hands in mice. Modern species are a culinary delicacy in countries like Estonia which celebrates their migration with a yearly festival.
