Squalicorax falcatus – Large complete shark with soft tissue preservation. Wonderful skeleton of an extinct (Crow) shark, measuring 7 feet (2.13 m.) long, on original matrix, 84” (213.4 cm.) long and 26” (66.04 cm.) tall. Specimen is contained in the refined plaster field jacket. Remains are highly detailed, with 50 serrated, articulated teeth in upper and lower jaws. Plus, there are 27 additional, disarticulated teeth in the area above the skull. All the teeth are in PRISTINE condition and range in size from 1/4″ (6.4 mm.) to 3/4″ (19.05 mm.) long.
There are 128 visible vertebrae. A significant amount of the shark’s skin is preserved and laying on top of the vertebrae and other soft tissue remains. Stomach contents are preserved and consist of the bony remains of two Squid, plus other unidentifiable remains. A substantial portion of the dorsal vertebrae is present, along with two large areas of soft-tissue, which could possibly be the liver and viscera. The vertebral column displays extensive trauma that would have been fatal to the shark.
A RARE and outstanding discovery with scientific importance, plus great exhibit appeal. 100% ready for display.
