Fossil found

Date: 1/10/2008

A Queensland Museum curator found the most intact skeleton ever discovered of a 100-million-year-old fish. Paul Stumkat, of the Kronosaurus Korner fossil museum in Richmond, said the skeleton was found in an area of the state’s north-west which used to be a vast inland sea. The tuna-like skeleton, now on display in the museum, was around 70cm in length, showing fins, teeth and even digestive system.
