Large 20" Phareodus Fossil Fish - Reduced Price

This is a huge, 20" long Phareodus from the 18 inch layer of the Green River Formation. The 18 inch layer produces much darker colored fish fossils, but they are very time consuming to prepare as they tend to split out totally under the surface of the rock. The massive fish is nicely centered on a 25x17" slab of rock which has been backed by wood and has mounting hardware installed allowing it to be hung on a wall. This is a very impressive specimen of an uncommon fish.

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.

Price includes free shipping via UPS ground within the United States. Shipping to International destinations will be extra and will be billed separately after purchase.
