Yay! Hope some good papers come out of this. You don’t hear much about the Oligocene of Australia.

Wow! Did I say, wow! Amazing. But a question, is Carcharocles coming back into favor over Otodus for the mega sharks? This is the second such reference to the as Carcharocles instead of Otodus in the last month or so.

This is awesome! If I found a bunch of huge pristine angustidens teeth sticking out of my backyard I would probably pass out from the excitement :D
