Name: Onchosaurus numidus
Species: Sawfish
Specimen: Sawfish Rostral Spine
Age: Albian, Cretaceous
Location Found: South of Taouz, Kem-Kem basin, Morocco

This Rostral Spine, or Denticle, is from a prehistoric Sawfish that is found in Cretaceous deposits throughout North Africa. Although the spines are barbed (unlike today’s Sawfish spines which are not barbed), the rostrum (snout; from which the spines protrude from) is thought to have served the same purpose as today’s Sawfish, for sensing and stunning prey, as well as defence.

ACTUAL AS SEENThe image shows the EXACT unique specimen you will receive. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device.
