Fossil Fish, PT. II: A History
52 million years ago, Fossil Lake in modern-day Wyoming was a booming tropical environment; a major contrast to the high-plains desert it is today. It was part of a larger freshwater lake system that existed for millions of years where ecological diversity flourished. We’re able to see many ancient relatives in the excavated fossil record but not only are we discovering and identifying different species, we’re also getting an insight into the behaviors of animals and how they interacted with their environment.
Life and death in every aspect is preserved in this formation - trace fossils indicating locomotion, evidence of stomach contents, reproductive development, and even sex and mating behaviors. The Early Eocene was a lively time, that’s for sure.
