Recommended Posts

I was wondering what the general consensus is on what Palaeocarcharodon's ancestors are. Inwas also hoping some of you could share pics of your early or transitional palaeo teeth.

 

cheers!

The general consensus is that the anecestor of paleocarcharodon is cretolamna I believe. I found a few possible teeth, but I'm not great with IDs so Could be wrong. It's not transitional though.

If it's not a cretolamna it's a otodus, another descendant of cretolamna

We've talked about this before.  You should search this site for "Palaeocarcharodon."  Offhand, i recall this pinned thread:

Thanks for posting!

I take it you were lead author on this paper?

Looks like a lot of work went into this. I look forward to reading it.

Yes and yes.

 

I can't do anything in moderation.
