You need another Devonian exhibit?
Why not Hyneria lindae, one of the largest lobe-finned fishes ever to exist?
Fearsome predator, slightly ambulatory on land, featured in an episode of Walking with Monsters.
(Images too large to feature, go to these links.)

And why not maybe Stethacanthus, the good old ironing board shark?
(Still find that name hilarious, but it always reminded me of an anvil.)

I think the Parrotfish is a better example for Dunkleosteus. Of all modern fish, the Parrotfish is probably the closest in anatomy to the Dunkleosteus. They have similar... "teeth".
