Not dinosaurs, but still cool

Found out that the following will be on the Discovery Channel next week:
Jurassic Shark (North American premiere)
Wednesday, Aug. 16, 9 p.m. and midnight ET/PT
Sunday, Aug. 20, 2 p.m. ET/PT

Watch the evolutionary history of the shark unfold over millions of years.
Through 3-D imaging and illustrations, Jurassic Shark introduces viewers to
unusual prehistoric creatures with brush-like appendages, circular tooth
saws and even wings, then features several modern-day species, including
nurse, lemon and tiger sharks.

Paleoichthyologists Richard Lund and John Maisey will be answering questions
online about extinct sharks as part of this Shark Week.
