Edestus Shark in Video Game

The game developers of Jurassic World cell phone game have modeled an Edestus shark for the game. It showed up as one of the creatures to get past in the tournaments set for this weekend. It is interesting to see how the graphic designer modeled it's teeth in a single row.

The real shark is much older than the Jurassic Period. It dates to the upper Middle Pennsylvanian or Carboniferous Period (approximately 307 million years ago).

See this entry from 2015 about an actual Edestus fossil found in a Kentucky coal mine.
