I've recently become very interested in the sharks of the Cretaceous. The largest of all sharks during this time period was supposedly Cretoxyrhina mantelli, or the "Ginsu Shark". It likely would've highly resembled the modern Great White. I looked up a few images of their teeth, but I was wondering if anyone who hunts the Cretaceous here on the forum has any of their own? If so, I'd love to see them! Hoppe hunting!
Macrophyseter posted a topic in Paleo Re-creationsAfter stuffing my face into tons of scientific articles on Late Cretaceous Lamniformes, I decided that I'd want to draw some sharks. Here's a drawing of the two infamous sharks of the Niobrara Formation Cretoxyrhina mantelli and Squalicorax falcatus as partners-in-crime. I've made the Cretoxyrhina ≈6-7 meters and the Squalicorax ≈2 meters. As 2 meters would be the same size as a very tall 6'6" human, you could imagine the Squalicorax as the tallest ordinary human and see how much bigger Cretoxyrhina is. I've always felt like Squalicorax would commonly accompany predators like Cretoxyrhina to "help" strip bare the latter's kill (Crow sharks are indeed inferred by scientists as opportunistic feeders or scavengers), almost as if Ginsus had them as little cronies. Also, the common name Crow Shark sounds somewhat similar to crony. Now what if we started a new nickname for Squalicorax as a crony? That would be hilarious and maybe realistic. EXTRAS
Here's a few of my finds from my last couple of Northeast Texas creek hunts. It's been pretty slow but I'm trying again tomorrow. I did find a killer Ginsu shark tooth and cool fish vert with partial process. I didn't know what the little penny trinket thing was until an older gentleman told me lol. The one vert with four pics is Pleistocene but I have no clue from what. We did find a large nest of cottonmouths where two males were fighting for a large female. We saw herds of wild hogs and had quite the kayak adventure. One kayak trip was 5 miles deep in the woods where we had to go over 7 log piles with the kayaks. I'm also unsure what the little white tooth is with multiple pics by the trinket. It has thick enamel whatever it is. Hope you enjoy the pics.
