|— Allen, about Hyneria|
Hyneria ("From Hyner") is an extinct genus of lobe-finned fish from the Devonian period around 360 MYA.
Hyneria was the second top predator of its time, after the monstrous Dunkleosteus. They measured five meters in length and weighed 2 tons. It had a solid bony skeleton, stout muscular fins and was covered in large scales. It also had powerful jaws and sharp teeth, and could swim fast, making it a deadly predator. It used keen eyesight and an acute sense of smell to detect prey, such as large fish and even primitive amphibians, such as Hynerpeton and Stethacanthus.
Hyneria was a solitary hunter, living in lakes, rivers, and even the oceans, however, they were insatiable carnivores. Although a flesh-eating fish, Hyneria could attack like a killer whale after a seal. Only just missing their prey, but they had remarkably powerful fins and could take their prey by surprise.
