Ray fish are still very much alive today, however the Myliobatis dixoni are a prehistoric genus of Eagle Ray fish that lived during the Eocene period.

These mouth plates were useful to crush clam shells & crustaceans!ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed.
