nice! Helicoprion sure is weird, ha i can't imagine how those teeth would possibly work in it's jaw. I always assumed they were in the throat somewhere, but it makes for a much less interesting reconstruction haha.
I shall join in. Already a member and I was already planning on doing something like this too so works out to be perfect haha. Are these the same guys from sketch tavern? (think that's what it was called)
Further proving that God either does not exist or is possibly related to me...Helicoprion. Because no sane being would create that...seriously it looks like something I would make on Spore only with less legs.
OH yeah! I almost wish we still had some of the sweet marine reptiles of the past! Although I would be too terrified to get in the water... but still! I like to remember that once, a long time ago, rats and beavers were the size of cars. Its just so cool
Yes, this is the "circular saw" shark, Helicoprion. It lived about 300 to 240 million years ago. We know it primarily by the teeth of its lower jaw, which are arranged in a spiral, and we still are unsure of how it was attached.
