Four to six million years ago, the Sabertooth Salmon swam up rivers of present-day California and Oregon. Though primarily a plankton feeder, the beast measured 5 to 7 feet in length and often weighed over 100 pounds!
Scientists believe it may have occasionally been able to reach the 500-pound mark!
OMG!! Think about floating into a hole full of 7-foot chrome rollers. WOW!
To read all about this massive salmon and what scientists have been learning about those huge 4-inch teeth from recent fossils discoveries in my article in the May 2016 issue of Salmon Trout Steelheader Magazine.
