This Phareodus encaustus, larger than it's Phareodus testis counterpart, was a predator in ancient Fossil Lake. With it's large pointy teeth and longer pectoral fin, Phareodus encaustus would have been a terrifying fish to swim with.
This phareodus specimen was inlayed and restored into this larger free-form style plate to accompany a very well preserved natural and rare banana leaf fossil.
Due to the size of this specimen, it will be shipped in an internationally compliant wooden crate. The plate itself is backed with 3/4" plywood for durability and easy wall hanging, a french cleat hanging system is included as well.
