Huge, 3.6" Pycnodontiforme Fish Crushing Mouthplate

Pycnodontiform fish superficial resemble angelfish and had a mouthful of knobby teeth that it used to crush it's food. Typically single teeth or partial sets are found unlike this specimen.

Given the size and completeness of this mouth plate it's a pretty unusual find.
