Fossil fish

Fish, of the Osteichthyes class, of the Late Jurassic Period (160 million years ago), coming from Germany. The very fine-grained limestone in which it was found, together with its rapid burial, have enabled a perfect preservation even of the soft parts, so that it is possible to see the skin and the internal parts.
