Kemmerer, Wyoming USA
Green River Formation, Early Eocene (53–48 mya)
One of the most important lagerstätten (deposit that exhibits
exceptional fossil preservation) in the world is found at Green River,
located in western Colorado, eastern Utah and southwestern
Wyoming in the United States.
During the Eocene, this region was a genuine vegetal and aquatic
paradise for tortoises, fish, crocodiles and other aquatic species.
Meanwhile, luxuriant vegetation reigned on land, with palms among
the most spectacular of them.
Extremely decorative, yet scientifically irreproachable, fossil slab
containing 5 different large specimen of Diplomystus and Phaerodus
freshwater fishes. The peculiarity of this paleontological masterpiece
lies in the superb work of preparation following two different fossil
strata in the very same slab.
