description  
An incredibly rare example of a tooth which belonged to a huge predatory fish that used to hunt in the vast open lakes and swamps some 325 million years ago and grew up to 23 feet in length. The tooth was discovered in 1970 and has remained in the same collection ever since. This fish also used to eat small to medium amphibians which would live in the large tropical swamps at the time. It has been proposed that Rhizodus may have lunged at terrestrial, shorebound prey, just like modern day crocodiles! A beautiful and important tooth for the serious collector of incredibly rare UK fossil fish.
