Bothriolepis sp. fish in a lake in the Devonian period (408-360 million years ago), computer artwork. Bothriolepis sp. fish are amongst the earliest fish known. They had plates of armour over the front part of their bodies, but none on their tails. Fossils of Bothriolepis sp. fish have been found throughout the world in rocks from the middle and late Devonian period. They were mainly freshwater fish, but could tolerate sea water as well. They had two lungs, and could survive out of water for a time. They fed on algae and detritus at the sea or lake bed. This model is from the Devonian Sea Simulator, an interactive virtual reality model of Devonian marine life.
