      [The Archelon is the largest sea turtle species ever discovered. It lived during a time when most of North America was covered by a shallow ocean, about 75-65 million years ago.] It might be disturbing to some people, but I've always found bones and fossils and other old stuff interesting.

      Archelon ischyros, the giant sea turtle, lived around 75-65 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period, a time when North America was mostly covered by a shallow, tropical sea. About 4m (13ft) long and 4.9m (16ft) wide, it is estimated to have weighed more than 2200kg or 4900lb and may have had a life span of around a century.

    Leatherback Sea Turtle - When This Massive Turtle Opens Its Mouth, You're In For The Surprise Of Your Life | Lumazing

    Lyuba is a female woolly mammoth calf who died 41,800 years ago at the age of 30 to 35 days. Lyuba is believed to have suffocated by inhaling mud while bogged down in deep mud in the bed of a river her herd was crossing. Lyuba appears to have been healthy at the time of her death. By examining Lyuba's teeth, researchers hope to gain insight into what caused Ice Age mammals, including the mammoths, to become extinct at the end of the Pleistocene era around 10,000 years ago

    Whorl Shark (Helicoprion) lived 280-225 million years ago. Modern sharks continue to grow teeth throughout their lives and shed old teeth. Ancient sharks grew new teeth, but kept the old teeth as well. In some species, old teeth migrated to the face to make room for teeth in the jaw. In the whorl shark, old teeth were just rotated around.
