Marine Fossils

The Lagoon must have been treacherous to any sea-faring creature that swam into the lagoon. This image is of regurgitated material (the name of this bony fish is Caturus (Strobilodus) sp., Blumenberg bei Eichstätt), the organism that decided to have this poor little fellow for lunch must have been violently ill before leaving the lagoon or most likely dying elsewhere in the lagoon (modified from Barthel et. al., 1990).
