This is a fragment of a thick layer of dolomitic ferruginous mudstone with an impression of a tuna-like fish on one side. In its abdominal section, there are preserved skeletons of smaller fish that have been eaten.
The block of mudstone (a clastic rock mainly consisting of quartz grains; in the case of the specimen – with an addition of dolomite and iron compounds) bears traces of roundedness which suggest that it was transported by a stream for several hundred metres or even a few kilometres.
It was found in Wetlina, in Stare Sioło, on the outside of a gravel sandbar (a bank of gravel built by water), near the left bank of the Wetlinka brook channel.
