Enchodus Tooth

Product description

A good example of a tooth, still set in the jaw, of the extinct fish Enchodus, dating from the late Cretaceous, 96m to 65m years old.
This specimen was discovered in Khorigba, Morocco.
Enchodus was a salmon-like predatory fish, which had a large head, big eyes, and torpedo shaped body. Its most outstanding feature was the large fangs at the front of the mouth which could grow up to 6 cms in length, giving it the nickname of "Sabre Toothed Herring".
The teeth were slightly curved and interlocking.
Enchodus led to the evolution of modern day boney fish.
 
An unusual fossil tooth, rarely found for sale, with the added bonus of the partial jawbone.
