HEAD OF GIANT 330-MILLION-YEAR-OLD SHARK FOUND IN WALL OF KENTUCKY CAVE

 

Researchers have uncovered the remnants of a huge, fossilized shark head in the walls of a cave in Kentucky.

 

The remains of the ancient animal are located in Mammoth Cave National Park, which is home to the longest known cave system on Earth—one that extends for more than 400 miles, according to the National Park Service.

 

The shark fossil—dated to around 330 million years ago—was first spotted alongside several others by Rick Olson and Rick Toomey, two Mammoth Cave experts who were conducting investigations of the area, the Louisville Courier Journal reported.
