Saber-toothed ancient anchovies

"Saber-toothed anchovies roamed the oceans 45 million years ago. When dinosaurs and other large predators went extinct some 66 million years ago, lots of creatures evolved to take their place. But unlike the plankton-hunting anchovies we eat in Caesar salads today, some ancient anchovies evolved into fish-eating predators, according to a new study." - Excerpt from Science
