Santana Formation, Lower Cretaceous, 100 million years old - Brazil

A superb extra large fish Enneles audax, from Brazil.
The fish dates from the Lower Cretaceous, Late Aptian-Cenomanian, and is 108 to 92 million years old. It was discovered in the Santana Formation, Ceara, Northeastern Brazil.

This large fish known as Enneles audax, is also described as Calamopleurus cylindricus, and is a rare predatory bowfin fish.
It was a middle to large size fish, with a rounded snout, and a mouthful of teeth.
It also had large triangular scales, clearly visible on this wonderful specimen.
Only one descendant of this fish exists today - Amla calva.

The Santana Formation is to be found in North East Brazil, in the Araripe Basin. The strata were laid down during the early Cretaceous Period.
The location produces exceptionally well preserved and diverse fauna & Flora. Over 25 species of fish are known, along with pterosaurs, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and plants. Many soft parts were preserved during fossilisation.

In the future it will become much more difficult to offer these spectacular fossils, as there are moves afoot to make the formation, and its fossil record, a protected area.

This is a super large fossil, a wonderful display item for the home or office, or a great addition to a collection.

Size: 1 metre (3.3 feet long)

    What was broken.
    You told me nothing about this.

    It was really well packed and protected, so I find this very strange.

    The customer was sent a pair of Scutella Echinoids as he expected, at which point he declared he was very happy indeed.
    Now he says I can be taken to a tribunal for fraud!!
    Come on.
    What next.
