A New species Of Fossil Fish Drawn by Jack Saxon

Cover picture: A new fossil fish Cheirolepis trailli which has been found in Caithness and Orkney; it occurs in the Achanarras horizon and the Sandwick Fish Bed. It was a fast-swimming predatory fish, apparently maintaining sensory contact with its prey by sight. The size of prey was probably set by the extent to which it could open its jaws - it may have swallowed prey half or two-thirds its length. It is probable that it preferred the deeper offshore waters where it could make use of its speed and where the waters were clearer.
