The phosphatized fossil fish found in the concretions from the Araripe Basin of Brazil are amongst the most spectacular fossils known and they are commonly encountered for sale in fossil shops around the world. This title documents something of the wondrous fossil assemblages from the Cretaceous Lagerstatten of Brazil, including information on the geological setting, taphonomy, and not forgetting the fabulous fossils themselves.
