THE SOFT TISSUE FOSSILS PAGE
photo gallery of specimens with soft tissue
In this page we are going to add pictures of fossil specimens we own,
which are from some world famous quarries known as "Largerstatten".
Most of specimens in this page are preserved
not only hard shells or skins but also totally soft tissues,
and such specimens are rarely seen
in common quarry except these Largerstatten....

Please note that we cannot be responsible for any loss
if you utilize any contents in this website with trust
(many wrong and out-of-date informations would be contained).
Some of classifications of fossil species in this site are NOT correct
from the aspect of taxonomy, like Branchiocaris as "phyllocarid-like creature".
And since the objective of this website is merely to create photo gallery
so we will not attach precise descriptions to each of the specimens basically.
