Fish Fossils For SaleFossil Fish

 
Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsThe fossil fish specimens on this page belong to the extinct genus Knightia, which were related to modern-day herring and sardines.  Knightia is the vertebrate fossil most often found completely articulated, with its structural parts attached and aligned as they were in life.

Knightia were bony fish with with heavy scales and small conical teeth.  They were a schooling fish, whose small size and frequent discovery in the jaws and guts of larger fish suggest they were near the beginning of the food chain.  Knightia probably fed on phytoplankton, as well as insects and the occasional smaller fish.

Knightia lived during the Eocene, some 50 million years ago, in warm temperate to subtropical freshwater (lake) environments.  The slabs containing the Knightia fossils on this page are fine-grained limestone sediments from the famous Green River Formation in southwestern WyomingKnightia is the state fossil of Wyoming, and was named after Wilbur Clinton Knight, Wyoming's first state geologist.
