Fossilized Fish - Brazil


Recommended Posts

Members, during a trip to Brazil almost 20 years ago, I purchased this composit of 4 different fossilized fish.  The fossils of the fish look authentic and I tried to take photos to demonstate the relief of each fish. But I beleive they were "arranged" into this one piece.  Not sure if and how getting 4 fossils into one piece is done.  

 

I am more interested in knowing if the fish are indeed authentic and what the individual species of each are?  Also, is it possible to gague what period they are from?

 

I am hoping someone will tell me that I did not haul this 10 lb piece back to the US in vain. 

 

Thanks in advance.  I look forward to any response and hope everyone is safe and well. 

 

Respectfully,

 

Dubs

The fins and tails are likely carved, but the rest of the fish looks OK to me.

Tim,

 

Thank you so much for you super fast response and the identification of these fossilized fish.  I really can't thank you enough!  Maybe it was worth hauling this beast on the plane as a carryon!
