We also have evidence that sharks fed on hadrosaurs (Everhart, M. J. and K. 
Ewell.   2006. Shark-bitten dinosaur (Hadrosauridae) vertebrae from the 
Niobrara Chalk (Upper Coniacian) of western Kansas. Kansas Academy of  Science, 
Transactions, 109 (1-2):27-35. ), but this is not strong support for a 
hypothesis that Mesozoic sharks lived on land.
