Helicoprion, a bizarre 270 million year old whorl-toothed shark that swam ancient seas covering much of western North America, has intrigued paleontologists for over a century. Explore the discoveries made by a team of scientists and a Helicoprion-obsessed artist that have shed new light on this fascinating fish. The cutting-edge research conducted by this team included scanning an exceptional Helicoprion fossil from Idaho at the University of Texas High-Resolution X-Ray CT Facility in Austin.

The Buzz Saw Sharks of Long Ago is a unique combination of science, art, and humor. It offers something for the whole family – fossils, original artwork by Ray Troll, life-sized sculptures by Gary Staab, and more!

The exhibit is organized by the Idaho Museum of Natural History in collaboration with Ray Troll.
