This is a beautiful display fossil. It is a large Phareodus testis fossil fish from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. Phareodus was a predatory fish, with a mouth full of sharp teeth. This specimen showcases these LONG teeth beautifully. The fish is very well-preserved and has extremely fine detail. The fins and tail are simply awesome - very complete and symmetrical. And the scale pattern is even somewhat preserved on this specimen. The fish is well showcased on a large, rectangular matrix plate. And, remember, this fish is a foot long - WOW! This is one of the larger and better Phareodus specimens we have ever had.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
