Pachyrhizodus Scale

Pachyrhizodus caninus

Pachyrhizodus was a powerfully-build mid-level predator capable of rapid acceleration. It is comparable to modern tarpons in size and physique. Pachyrhizodus has a prominent lower jaw forming a large mouth for catching small fish capable of eluding slower and less tenacious predators. Displayed as a school, Pachyrhizodus can rival a flock of Velociraptor with the sense of ferocity they bring to an exhibit.
