What am I looking at? Fossil Fish

Now that is a great price for two very lovely fossil fish. For sale at the reptile shop in Coventry. I am a big fan of fossils and artefacts because they put you in touch with the past in a very immediate way. I wonder what creatures these fish shared their oceans with, what sky’s they swam under? I know I’m being a hopeless romantic and they were just simple fish going about their fishy business, just like countless others, but fossils bring out the imagination I think not least because of countless billions these two were selected by mindless chance to end up for sale in Coventry.
