Galagadon, a genus of extinct sharks, was so named because its teeth resemble the video game spaceship. Looking at them side by side (above) it’s easy to say why. According to the paper published in the Journal of Paleontology, this shark was a small, river-dwelling species with teeth specialized to crush shells and eat small fish.
