ENCHODUS FISH FANG TOOTH

Phosphates Deposits - Khouribga, Morocco

LATE CRETACEOUS TO EOCENE PERIOD:  96 - 60 million years ago

This large predatory bony fish was easily the "saber-tooth tiger" of the prehistoric oceans.  The seas of the late cretaceous must have been a terrifying place.  Imagine salmon-like giant fish up to 1.5 meters in length with fangs such as the one pictured here.  This Enchodus fang tooth was found in the Cretaceous and Eocene era phosphate bearing matrix of the mines in Khouribga, Morocco.  This specimen is INTACT WITH NO REPAIR OR RESTORATION and is a top grade example hand-selected out of numerous damaged and partial specimens.  Complete, fine grade specimens like this are uncommon.  A very unique, collectible and affordable tooth from a fantastic prehistoric fish. 

Judging from the large fangs on the ends of the upper and lower jaws along with the streamlined body contour, the Enchodus was most likely a ferocious fish that struck it's prey with lightning quick attacks.  Unfortunately, seldom is heard about this killer outside of paleontological studies.
