Enchodus petrosus

Enchodus was a large predatory fish that appeared in the Late Cretaceous and transcended the End Cretaceous extinction to survive into the Eocene. Sometimes referred to as the “Saber-toothed Herring” of the Western Interior Seaway, it is more closely related to trout and salmon. The largest of the fangs giving this fish its ferocious appearance are over 2 inches long.
