Knightia sp., fossil fish
Eocene, western North America

Knightia was a herring-like fish that lived in large schools in the great Eocene age lakes of the western U.S.  The upturned mouth in this replica indicates that it was a surface feeder.  Because of its abundance, Knightia served as food for a number of other, larger fish; sometimes being preserved within the stomach region of fossils fish.  See items 133 and 134 for other fish that lived with Knightia.

This fossil cast comes with an informative brochure.
