Enchodus

100-60 million years old


Enchodus The Enchodus is a fish that mainly occurred around the late Cretaceous period (around 100 million years ago) and died out in the Eocene (around 33.9 million years ago). Characteristic of this fish is its two large ‘front teeth’. This also gave this fish its nickname the “saber-toothed herring”. He was also not an exceptionally large fish but a very good hunter through his large eyes and streamlined body. Nevertheless, many remnants of the Enchodus have been found in the stomachs of other larger hunters. For example, remains have been found in the stomachs of the mosasaurus and the plesiosaurs. In our webshop we sell both bones and teeth from the Enchodus.
