I wonder where that fish has gone...



It's been a slow couple of days on the DML, so here's some non-dinosaur news 
from Australia - the 
first bony fish fossil from the Winton Formation:

--

Large predatory fish fossil found near Isisford

The fossil of a large, fast-swimming predatory fish, similar to the modern day 
Indo-Pacific tarpon, 
has been found near Isisford, central-western Queensland. 

The new fossil comes from the same locality that produced the skeleton of 
Isisfordia duncani, the 
world's first modern crocodilian, and is estimated to be between 98 and 95 
million years old...
