Caption: Climatius sp. fish in the sea in the Devonian period (408-360 million years ago), computer artwork. Climatius sp. fish were acanthodians, which were some of the earliest known jawed fish. They were also early examples of fish with paired fins. It is thought that these changes allowed the fish to adapt to a more predatory role than their ancestors. Their skeletons were made out of cartilage rather than bone, much like modern-day sharks and rays. This model is from the Devonian Sea Simulator, an interactive virtual reality model of Devonian marine life.
