The Onchopristis (giant saw) is a large cartilaginous fish with a snout similar to a sawfish. In fact it was a prehistoric sawfish. It is gray all over, has two dorsal fins, pectoral fins coming out of the side of its body, a flat stomach, and a triangular tail.

One of Onchopristis's main predators was the Spinosaurus, which was the longest land predator of all time as of currently. Onchopristis is also considered a giant sawfish.

The Onchopristis is a light brown, with a grey underbelly. It has grey spots covering the top of the body and bottom of the fins.

The Shark of the Shallows Onchopristis has a slimmer, darker rock gray body, with a black border around most of it.

It has black enlarged saw teeth on the snout, 4 forward-facing dorsal fins and 4 pectoral fins that flap as it swims, and a pointed tail with 5 spikes on top and an anchor on the end, which would make sense for its loss of speed. It loses -2 speed.

Information

The Fossil Onchopristis was a hard-to-find fossil skin because it only had the saw part of the fossil showing when it was hidden around the main map.

Design

Its head is the only part that resembles all fossil skin colors. It is pale yellow in color with its saw-like teeth still visible, like the prehistoric jaw fish. Its body is gray in color, and its whole body seems to have also become a skeleton, or a gray ghost skin in color. It is semi-transparent with some of its skeleton see-through its body.

Trivia

  • This skin is part of the Fossil Skins Collection.

Onchopristis numidus is a giant sclerorhynchid sawfish that lived in North America, Africa and New Zealand from the Early to Late Cretaceous. It had an elongated snout lined laterally with barbed teeth. As with modern sawfish, Onchopristis's eyes were on top of its head, to spot predators rather than prey, and its mouth and gills were under its body. The rostrum, or snout, was around 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) long and the whole animal is estimated to be about 8 meters (26.2 feet) long.

These fish used their rostrum as way to detect prey, sweeping their rostrum from side to side to put their sensors to use. Once they detected prey, they would then chop it to pieces with the barbs on it's rostrum. Despite being a large predator, it was preyed on by larger carnivores like Spinosaurus.
