Inside the Collections: Fossil Sharks and Ammonites

Thanks to a major donation from Ohio University, over 540,000 marine fossils have been added to the Museum's collection. Most of the collection is from the Paleozoic era, and includes both marine invertebrates like ammonites, as well as fossil fish and sharks. In this video, Museum curators Neil Landman and John Maisey talk about the importance of this new addition, and the interesting questions that have arisen from its specimens, like John Maisey’s latest research on the evolution of shark jaws.
