Enchodus teeth and Vertebra

Product description

A terrific example containing both teeth and a vertebra from the predatory fish, Enchodus, dating from the Late Cretaceous, 96m to 65m years ago.
This specimen was discovered in Khourigba, Morocco.
Enchodus was a salmon-like predatory fish, which had a large head, big eyes, and a 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 Tooth Herring".
The teeth were slightly curved and interlocking.
Enchodus led to the evolution of modern day boney fish.
 
A great piece with a large front tooth, smaller teeth, and a vertebra.
Very unusual fossil of this fish.
