Australian scientists have disclosed that a 9-meter giant dogfish lived 25 million years ago on a beach in Victoria.

I was excited, it was a great thing, I knew it was an important discovery I had to share with people, “he said.
Mullaly said she was surprised by the fact that her teeth were unspoiled and she used expressions like “Very sharp, even though she was 25 million years old, it was like she had just fallen in the mouth of a dogfish.”

Victoria Corner Manager Erich Fitzgerald explained that they found a piece of the back spine of the giant herring with 45 teeth in the excavations they performed with the fossil field.Fitzgerald recalled that the reconnaissance made is very important, “the tooth set of this species has been found for the first time among the 160 years of fossils in Australia, and there are only 3 in the whole world,” he said.

The teeth will be exhibited at the Melbourne Museum.
