some  of  these  fossils  came  out  of  Wiegand  mines  in Mexico.   the smaller  fossils  are  nearly  complete,  but the fossils in limestone / dolomite  that are usually larger  than  two  feet long,  come out in several pieces.  one  of  the  Wiegand  archeologists  / geologists  carefully and pains-takingly  clean the chalk  lime mud from  around the  fossilized bones  of  rare fish and the shells of rare oysters and clamshells.  most are of the Cretaceous and Jurassic geology time periods.  the dinasaur bones are separate from the fish because the fish lived in the sea saltwater, but the dinosaurs lived onshore.
" The Cretaceous is a Geological  Period and system  that  spans  79 million  years, from the end  of  the  Jurassic Geological  Period 145 million  years  ago ( mya ), to the beginning of the Paleogene GeolAguasProfsml.JPGogical Period 66 mya.  The Cretaceous Period is the last Period of the Mesozoic ( geological ) Era.  The Cretaceous  Period  is indicated by the letter K, for its German translation of the word "chalk", in the German language, "Kriede".  The  German geologists  were some of the most educated geologists in the historical earth world."

hhmmmhhmm, is there anyone out there who can confirm the name of this fish?  Fred presumes it is a deepwater fish fossil.  It died about  one hundred million years  ago, more or less.
