Re: [Re: New ref (Mosasaur bite marks)]
In a message dated 98-10-17 03:01:06 EDT, you write:
Could these bite marks have come from he mysterious _Globidens_(sp?) with
strange, clam and crustacean crushing teeth?
As you state, the rounded and globular teeth of Globidens would probably
crush the ammonite rather pierce the shell. The closely related Prognathodon
is probably the best candidate for ammonite-feeder. Its teeth are stout, yet
sharp and the skull is massive and burly. Dan Varner.
