Australian instructor finds ancient teeth from a monstrous shark

An instructor and fossil researcher found a mammoth set of ancient shark teeth assessed to be around 25 million years of age at a shoreline in Australia. Philip Mullaly, an Australian instructor found the set of shark teeth when he saw a shark’s tooth jabbing out of a rock on the shoreline in Jan Juc, a famous fossil site along Victoria’s Surf Coast in Australia.

As indicated by the Museums Victoria, these teeth prove that a Great Jagged Narrow-Toothed Shark which would have developed to more than 30-feet long, almost twofold the extent of a big white once lived in Australia’s antiquated seas roughly 25 million years back.

Mullaly expressed that he was strolling along the shoreline searching for fossils when he saw this sparkling flash in a stone and saw a fourth of the tooth uncovered. He was extremely excited, it was simply impeccable and he understood that it was imperative to observe that should have been imparted to individuals.

Erich Fitzgerald, a scientist from the Museums Victoria stated that we have been searching for fossils around the globe for nearly 200 years now, however, have discovered only three arrangements of fossils of this kind on the whole planet in that time, and this latest find from Australia is one of those three. That doesn’t occur. That simply doesn’t occur every day. This has happened earlier only once in Australia, and that was an entirely another kind of shark.

The teeth fossils are presently exhibited at the Museums Victoria.
