Hi,

Please say where you found it as age would make a difference, looks a bit like Paleoniscus if it is Permian

The fish looks like it kippered due to the build up of gas in stomach then exploded

LOL, I guess you don't want to give too much away with fish like that to be had but any idea which geologic time period this limestone belongs to?

Hi, I have collected from Co Durham, I am guessing from s quarry in or near to Thrislington. The deposits from there are Permian. I thought it looked familiar hence my first reply.
