13.5" Phareodus Fossil Fish - Voracious Lake Predator
This is a large, 13.5" long example of one of the more uncommon fossil fish found in the Green River Formation, Phareodus. As an added bonus there is a small Diplomystus preserved just behind the fishes tail. There is some repair to the right edge of the rock in front of the fish's head, and a small amount of restoration to the very front of the head.
Comes with a display stand. We can add a backing and wall hanger upon request for an additional $20.
If you look closely you can see how Phareodus has a mouthful of sharp pointy teeth making is a voracious lake predator. In fact the name Phareodus actually means "to have tooth" Spines from other fish such as Mioplosus and Priscacara have frequently been found preserved in it's stomach.
