Fossil of a giant prehistoric fish found

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A rare fossil of a prehistoric monster-fish's spiral of chainsaw-like teeth has been found in Russia. 

The scary Helicoprion was an extinct ancestor of the modern-day ghost shark or ratfish with an impressive set of nashers - that lived millions of years before the dinosaurs.

Discovered in an open coal mine in Volgograd, southern Russia, the latest example of the cartilaginous fish shows a fossilised arsenal of radial murder-teeth.
