Caption

Sarcoprion edax, prehistoric shark, artwork. This species of prehistoric shark existed 259 million years ago. This shark is known only from fossilised sets of teeth that form circular coils. It is thought that the tooth-whorl formed on the lower jaw and developed as newer teeth grew and pushed the older teeth to form the coil. It is not known how the shark used the coil to feed.
