PLACODERMS WERE AS CLASS OF ANCIENT ARMOURED FISH THAT FIRST APPEARED IN THE ORDOVICIAN PERIOD ROUGHLY 450 MILLION YEARS AGO.

 

THE WORD PLACODERM MEANS “PLATE-SKINNED”. THIS ARMOUR EXISTS FROM A HEAD SHIELD AND TRUNK SHIELD, CONNECTED BY A PAIRED JOINT IN THE NECK REGION. IT'S UNLIKELY THAT MODERN FISH ARE RELATED WITH PLACODERMS BECAUSE OF THE DIFFERENT ARRANGEMENT OF THE BONES.

 

 

THE MOST FAMOUS MEMBER OF THIS GROUP WAS DUNKLEOSTEUS WHICH GREW TO LENGTHS OF UP TO 6 METERS AND HAD SCISSOR-LIKE JAWS.
