Ancient fossil of Saber-toothed fish has been recently excavated from the grounds of Punjab province of Pakistan. It is also estimated that the fossil discovered has been lying under the surface of Pakistan for over million years from now.
The millions of years old saber-toothed fish’s fossil has been named after a witch a witch as per its sharply pointed and long teeth.
Basically, some fossils that age from almost 50 million years, be it of fish or of different types but the same species were found in Belgium in the past.
But this saber-toothed fish’s fossil has been discovered in the Salt Mountains of the Punjab Province of Pakistan. According to an expert, the teeth of this fish were conical, large and unusual than the other saber-toothed tiger fish one get to see in the present era.
Also, this type of fish was more dangerous than the others belonging to the same species. The weird thing here to notice is that today such kind of creature has almost no teeth at all and lives by eating very tiny or more specifically, microscopic objects.
Over this discovery, a PhD student from the University of Michigan’s Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Alessio Capobianco, said the fossil was 45 million years old, as per the Capobianco’s research paper in the Royal Society’s research journal.
The research paper says that the fish’s fossil was discovered in “Rakhi Nala on the east side of the Sulaiman Range in the Dera Ghazi Khan” in the Punjab province of Pakistan.
Capobianco said: “One meter in length, it lived in the shallow seas of Pakistan 45 million years ago.” The aforementioned research said that this ancient fish had a series of fine teeth aligned in row in its lower jaw and one long, and pointed one in the upper jaw.
