From www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/03/unraveling-the-nature-of-the-whorl-toothed-shark/

Some scientists believe that the whorl shark, unlike other sharks that discard old teeth, kept all of their older teeth, and stored them in a constantly rolling, growing lower jaw

Definitely the coolest/most retarded shark picture I've ever seen

In what way is that an evolutionary advantage?

and if their old teeth wouldnt they all be broken and screwed up?

Well, this isn't an actual photograph.

maybe it gets itchy and needs to scratch. maybe thats why other sharks are so pissed all the time. because they need to scratch.

hmmm............ that could be useful for.......... reasons.

Maybe it could be used as some sort of arm to reach food in front of it? I have no idea if it had any muscle there to control it.

Clearly it was not as there are no more like it left.
#29 to #20 - JHDog (01/16/2013) [-]
Yeah, but it's the fact that they did exist at one point. So during that period, the curling of the jaw must have proven to be advantageous in its environment during that specific point of time.
#38 to #29 - anon (01/16/2013) [-]
Pretty simple, without it, that shark wouldnt have anymore teeth, thus die. Evolutions randomness gave him an never ending jaw of killer potential!

Interresting article, thanks for the link! :)

Let me tell you something, this thing would litterally make me **** the power of a thousand suns.
I'd be all scuba-divin' and **** in open water,
and all of the sudden some other diver would turn on his water-proof Ipod to the Jaw's theme 7/10ths of a second before being ripped into a total of 283 pieces.
Da fuq...
and then, another, and another.
Everyone looking to be sodomized by a giant blender.
But wait...I'm no physicist, but this isn't normal every-day **** happening here...
Finally, I'm the last one, swimming, heart beating enough blood for an entire slasher movie, guy's ****** Ipod still playing, when then...
"Hello..."
IT'S SOMEONE ELSE!
But suddenly, after turning, I feel a force of liquid on my back, and there it is, with a mouth full of teeth, and knife-like fins, it darts up toward the boat on the water's surface and causes it to explode.
There I am, blinded by the flash of fire, being poked by metallic bits...
and I don't know where he is, either...

Looks like the trunk of an elephant.

Based on that article, and this may have been how it was put at one point but I'm not entirely sure in my tired state, couldn't the lower jaw have been the only one with teeth, and then when it fed, it lured or caught food in it's mouth, moved the spiral up and out, and then used just it's lower jaw to eat, by kind of folding it over and chewing that way?

Scientists can't actually figure out what sharks looked like because they had cartilage. The only bones they find are teeth and I want to know how the teeth would lead one to this image.

This image has expired
The fossilized teeth are literally in the first image of the article...click before you spout nonsense, anon
