Massive Megashark Teeth Discovered
In 2015, schoolteacher and amateur fossil hunter Philip Mullaly discovered a number of three-inch teeth of what would later be classified as the large Great Jagged Narrow-Toothed shark (Carcharocles angustidens).1 The teeth were found along a beach in Victoria, Australia. A three-inch tooth would have come from a shark in the neighborhood of 25 feet long—longer than the biggest recorded Great White.
 
The teeth were subjectively dated at 25 million years old, but it is just as scientific to suggest these remains were unearthed from sediments deposited by the Flood about 4,500 years ago. Indeed, other teeth were found with the Carcharocles teeth including the Sixgill shark that is alive and well today. No change in the Sixgill shark for 25 million years? Are we supposed to simply label the Sixgill shark as yet another living fossil? Living fossils are those creatures evolutionists claim have somehow not evolved over immense periods of time.

Where did sharks come from in the first place? Evolutionists don’t know. John Long in his allegedly authoritative book The Rise of Fishes: 500 Million Years of Evolution states, “The mystery remains as to how sharks first evolved.”2 Even the basal or supposedly most primitive sharks (evolutionarily speaking) such as the Cladoselachidae, according to famous vertebrate evolutionist Michael Benton, “was surprisingly modern looking.”3 Creation scientists concur: sharks have always been sharks.
 
Yes, the three-inch teeth are from a sizable prehistoric shark—an unfortunate creature who died in Noah’s Flood with billions of others about 4,500 years ago.
