The American paddlefish (polyodon spathula) is native to the Mississippi River basin.

Fossil records of paddlefish date back over 300 million years, nearly 50 million years before dinosaurs first appeared. They are currently classified as a threatened species. My husband studied the paddlefish as part of his Masters degree research. I used to like to go and visit his lab and see the baby paddlefish. Instead of having shiny scales like many fish, paddlefish are very smooth and look like wet velvet. This design is all made from painted paper and hand-cut security paper envelopes. (Security paper is the kind of envelope your bank statement comes in, with printed patterns on the inside of the paper.)
