What does the Hybodont look like?

Here are some facts that you may find interesting:
  • Hybodonts were very diverse and widespread, occupying marine and freshwater habitats across the world.
    They were especially abundant during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic, but became rare in open marine environments by the end of the Jurassic, having been largely replaced by modern sharks.
  • Hybodonts are considered a wastebasket taxon, meaning that many species have been assigned to the genus Hybodus without proper phylogenetic analysis.
    The only two species that should be retained within the genus are Hybodus reticulatus and Hybodus hauffianus, both from the Early Jurassic.
    The other species may belong to different genera or families within the order Hybodontiformes.
  • Hybodonts are among the best-known fossil sharks, due to their distinctive teeth and fin spines that are often preserved.
    Rare complete or partial skeletons are also known from some exceptional fossil sites, such as the Solnhofen Limestone in Germany and the Tiki Formation in India.
    These fossils reveal more details about the anatomy and lifestyle of these ancient sharks.
