Prehistoric Buzzsaw Ratfish on Film
I don’t think anyone was more ecstatic about having researchers finally figure out the arrangement of the Helicoprion dental equipment than Troll. He’s been chasing the trail of the Permian fossil for years. And now there’s going to be a film about the fulfillment of Troll’s dream. The documentary is called Buzzsaw Sharks of Idaho, and, to celebrate the scientific debut of the new Helicoprion, filmmaker Marc Osborne Jr has released of a seven minute teaser for the movie.
Musicians are jumping in to celebrate the ratfish’s new look, too. Country band 3 Trails West released two odes to Helicroprion – “The Whorl Tooth Sharks of Idaho” and “Minor Whorl”, which you can find on iTunes
