The large mouth of this Eurypholis, a prehistoric fish, indicates it may have been a predator, allowing it to swallow smaller prey. The Eurypholis is also known as a “Viper Fish." This fish is found in deposits dating to the middle Cretaceous, approximately 144 to 65 million years ago, from Lebanon.
