Product Description

An impressive late 19th or early 20th century large Sawfish Rostrum, in good condition and with 64 large teeth (32 pairs).

The rostrum has a yellowish-brown colour on the top and a yellowish sand colour on the underside. This may, in part, be due to having been hanging in a nicotine filled room. The teeth are all bar a bit of tip damage to 2 teeth. The fish uses the teeth to rake for prey along the bottom, so it is rare that so many are intact in a large example.

The Largetooth Sawfish (Pristis) is a species of sawfish, family Pristidae. It is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical coastal regions, but also enters freshwater. It has declined drastically from overfishing and is now protected as it is considered critically endangered.

Size: 112 x 15 x 3.25 cm (44 1/8 x 5 7/8 x 1 ΒΌ inches)
Weight: 1398g
