    We should have a thread for interesting visuals or pictures of artifacts from the past. I often come across them but don't know where to post them.

    Does anyone know if it's an extinct species or one with living descendants?

    "appears to showcase a social group, or shoal, of fish in a configuration reminiscent of what’s observed in modern species, suggesting that schooling behavior evolved many eons ago. But because fossils can take a while to form, it might be too early to tell whether this freeze frame accurately reflects how the group moved before its members died."

    wha...? They're in an organised extended tube shape. Some are outside the fringe but all facing the same direction so they weren't just swept together . It must reflect the normal schooling group.
