The Buzz Saw Shark and I
How one fish-crazy artist took the bait: an artist's perspective on a paleontology puzzle.
"In the spring of 1993 I saw a fossil in the basement of the Los Angles Museum of Natural History that changed the course of my life. It was a beautiful coil of shark teeth from an ancient shark called Helicoprion, and I soon became obsessed with solving the mystery surrounding this enigmatic creature. I tell the tale of how an artist like myself was able to team up with a group of scientists to accomplish that task some twenty years later using high resolution CT scans."
