Careful analysis of fish fossils showed that their seasonality in spring is linked to the growth cycle. The study authors surveyed the remains using synchrotron X-ray imaging, non-destructive imaging and 3D reconstruction of the fossils.

Small balls of glass were also found in the gills of these recently appeared fish He also found a Chinese rover on the moon. They formed after the surface ruptured after the asteroid fell, and then turned into small, transparent balls when they fell.
