Fish – shark
Acrodus and Gyrodus have large flat and rounded teeth with beautiful patterned surfaces that were used for crushing and breaking shells. Many fish alive today, including rays and some sharks, have similar teeth and feed in an identical way.
The teeth belong to the Maggs Collection. Thomas Maggs extracted fossils from Lyme Regis and near Sherborne in the 1870s. He was cleared of murder in 1875!
