Alaskan artist Ray Troll gets to the point of a life-size depiction of a buzz saw shark that lived 270 million years ago that went on display Friday at Sharkmania! at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Troll and paleontologist / geologist Dr. Leif Tapanila of Idaho State University both discussed the ancient shark as well as demonstrating the cutting power of such a configuration of teeth. They will do so again Saturday. For more information on the event see pdza.org.
