Details

Up for sale is a neat item - it's a nice tooth from the extinct bony fish ENCHODUS. THE TOOTH PICTURED IS NOT THE ONE YOU WILL RECEIVE. YOU WILL RECEIVE ONE OF SIMILAR OR BETTER QUALITY IF YOU PURCHASE THIS ITEM. This tooth was found in the phosphate mines of Kouribgha, Morocco, and it dates back to the Cretaceous period, 146-65 million years ago. Included with this fossil is an informational label telling about the tooth! These teeth are very old - they are from the dinosaur time period! So they have had repairs and may have some chips or nicks. But they are neat fossils from a very interesting prehistoric animal! One of the fish's most notable attributes was the large "fangs" at the front of the upper and lower jaws and on the palatine bones, leading to its nickname among fossil hunters, "the saber-toothed herring". These fangs, along with a long, sleek body, and large eyes, suggest that Enchodus was a predatory species. They may have reached up to 5 feet in length.
