Prehistoric shark found in Manzano Mountains


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An amazing discovery was made in the Manzano Mountains, the fossil of a pre-historic shark was found.

The fossil belongs to what is known as a comb spine shark and was discovered last year but has just recently been identified.

This is a picture of what the animal looked like.

It’s the first type of this shark to ever be found in New Mexico and it’s the first time a complete body of this type of shark has been found in North America.

Friday a CT scan will be performed on the fossil at a local hospital to provide a more complete view of the internal brain case and we’ll get to get video of it for the first time.
