Helicoprion

Helicoprion was an epic and unusual shark. It had a “tooth-whorl” in its mouth which is basically a saw with teeth instead of blades. Nobody knows how it actually looked. Most palaeontologists think it looked like this:
 
 
 but most regular people (I agree with the scientists) think it looked like this:
 
 
 There is significant evidence that the scientists are right, but no evidence can break a strong belief! The question is this: what did the shark do with its tooth-whorl? Some people say it increased their chances to get mates, and others say it used it to hack apart its prey. I think the latter is more likely. Well, that’s all for now! Oh, and Kin, can you make a new tab titled, “Amir’s Prehistory” so I can post the most epic prehistoric animals ever on it? Thanks.
