Happy Shark Week!

It's easy to forget that these animals once gave dinosaurs nightmares, too. Sharks have been around for over 400 million years, with the Great White family appearing 60-65 million years ago. That's exactly the same time as the extinction of the dinosaurs. Coincidence? I think not.

O days! Happy Shark Week!

Megan- you too! Now if only there were a dino week...

Ev- thanks man. Most of it's the atmosphere from the original poster.

Carrie- If it makes you feel any better, Carrie, the Rex was swimming after a baby Triceratops.

Colleen-"We're gonna need a bigger asteroid."

Hahaha awesome! Pre-historic sharks are probably that much bigger than dinosaurs.

Austin Madison said...

Megan and Chris- maybe "Reign of Dinosaurs" will fit the bill.

Fawn- And you know there's at least one still out there somewhere...
