Stand is 24cm by 20cm and overall height with fossil is 25cm. The most notable attribute of the enchodus fish are the large "fangs" at the front of the upper and lower jaws and on the palatine bones, leading to its misleading nickname of "saber-toothed herring". These fangs, along with a long sleek body and large eyes, suggest Enchodus was a predatory species. The extinct sawfish ( sawshark ) Dalpiazia stromeri, is a very rare species.
