Beautifully preserved Eocene age Phareodus fish fossil from the Green River Formation in Wyoming. A rare species to find in this formation the Phareodus has long teeth testifying to the fish's likely carnivorous behavior. In fact, the name means "to have tooth". A member of family Osteoglossidae, it has extant cousins found in Central-South America and Southeast Asia. This is a wonderful specimen with great scale and tooth preservation.
