Size: 0.75 to 1 inch long
What was Squalicorax?
Much like other ancient sharks, most of what we know about Squalicorax comes directly from its fossilized teeth. This is because sharks are mostly cartilaginous, which doesn't typically preserve very well in the fossil record. However, their teeth preserve excellently! It is believed that Squalicorax were potentially preying upon the notoriously violent mosasaurs that it shared the Cretaceous oceans with.
