So 25,000 years ago a guy in southern France went fishing and caught an Atlantic salmon. It was pretty big and he was rather proud of himself. His cave-mate was suitably impressed when he brought it back to her for dinner. Like all fishermen, though, he wanted something to show his buddies just how big it was the next time they came over for some fermented beverages, so he did what any other Upper Paleolithic person would do: he carved a picture of his salmon into the wall (above).

OK, most of this is conjecture (although knowing fishermen it makes sense, right?), but the fact is that the carving was found early last century in a cave known as the Abri du Poisson. It is the oldest depiction of a fish ever discovered. We just thought we'd share.
