Death in a puddle

These unfortunate fish died most likely in a puddle drying up.

Fish consist of Palaeoniscoid and Holostean types.

A deep bodied Cleitholepis was found at the bottom of the struggle, indicating it most likely succumbed first as the fusiforms tried to hang on for the next flood. Obviously it was all in vain. Largest fish is 9 inches long.
