About 50 million years ago parts of what is now Colorado, Utah and Wyoming were covered by
large intermountain lakes. The limestone, marl, shale and other sediments deposited in those lakes are today known as the Green River Formation.
The fish below are from the Green River Formation near Kemmerer, Wyoming. They have been carefully prepared for display. Some have been highlighted to enhance their appearance or to touch in the tip of a fin or tail.
