ENCHODUS FOSSIL FISH TEETH

Excavated in Oued Zem, Khouribga, phosphate plateau, Morocco

This tooth belonged to an "Enchodus" fish which is an extinct genus of bony fish.  It flourished during the Upper Cretaceous and was small to medium in size.  One of the genus' most notable attributes are the large "fangs" at the front of the upper & lower jaws, and on the palatine bones, leading to the misleading nickname among fossil hunters and paleoichyologists, "the saber-toothed herring".  These fangs, along with a sleek body and large eyes, suggest Enchodus was a predatory species. 

Despite being a formidable predator, remains of Enchodus are commonly found among the stomach contents of larger predators, including sharks, other bony fish, mosasaurs, plesiosaurs and seabirds such as Baptornis advenus.

 

Approx. age:  66 to 96 million years old

 

Order: Salmoniformes

Suborder: Enchodontoidei

FISH FOSSILS
Green River Formation, Kemmerer, Wyoming

Class actinopterygii, the ray-finned bony fishes, comprise almost half of all known species of vertebrates, some 20,000 extant species.

There are numerous locations worldwide that are noted for wondrous preservation of bony fishes, and
 the Green River formation which covers some 25,000 square miles of SW Wyoming, west Colorado and east Utah is one of them.

The formation is one of the largest lacustrine (i.e., lake) sedimentary accumulations in the world, averages some 2,000 feet thick, and spans the period 40 to 50 million years ago during the Eocene Epoch of the Cenozoic Era.
