This is a very impressive display fossil. It is a HUGE Phareodus encaustus fossil fish from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. Phareodus was a large predatory fish, with a mouth full of sharp teeth. And Phareodus encaustus is many, MANY times rarer than its kinder, gentler cousin, Phareodus testis. This fierce-looking specimen showcases its MANY LONG TEETH beautifully. The fish is very well-preserved and displays extremely fine detail. The backbone, fins, and tail are easily seen on this specimen. The fish is well showcased on a large, rectangular matrix plate, which is professionally framed for optimal display. And, remember, this fish is ALMOST TWO FEET LONG - WOW! This is the largest and best quality Phareodus encaustus specimen we have ever had, period.


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