Dorsal spine of Cladoselache. The neurocranium and jaws of Cladoselache by John E. Harris Download PDF EPUB FB2

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Harris, John Edward. Dorsal spine of Cladoselache. Cleveland, O., (OCoLC) Document Type: Book. Cladoselache, genus of extinct sharks, known from fossilized remains in Upper Devonian rocks (formed – million years ago) in North America and Europe.

Cladoselache is a good representative of early sharks. Unlike larger forms, its mouth opened at the front of the skull, rather than beneath. Cladoselache therefore probably seized prey by the tail and swallowed it whole.

Its sturdy but light-weight fin spines were composed of dentine and enamel. Cladoselache also had a blade-like structure which was positioned in front of the dorsal fins. These anatomical features made swimming easier and : Chondrichthyes. Subclass Chondrichthyes. Infraclass Elasmobranchii.

Like the latter, it appears to have had a long otic region on the neurocranium, a heterodont dentition and two dorsal finspines, but it differed in having longer, deeper jaws and a.

The Devono-Carboniferous chondrichthyan Stethacanthus is best known for its striking 'spine-brush' complex. Here we provide the first detailed description of the neurocranium, using several well-preserved specimens from Bearsden, Scotland (Serpukhovian; Pendleian E1).Cited by: Most of the best fossil specimens of Cladoselache (see illustration) are from the Upper Devonian Cleveland Shales and include complete individuals of around 1 m ( ft) in length.

Several of these have mineralized traces of soft tissues, including much of the superficial jaw and gill musculature and even apparent traces of internal organs such. this how the world looked like when the Cladoselache lived. The earthquake must have moved some rocks because, after the earthquake I saw a fossil of some I measured it,"wow!" 6 feet long.

how to pronounce Cladoselache: CLAY. The floor of the braincase is comparatively flat in Dalatias (Shirai, pl. 8), but in other dalatiids there may be a very deep interorbital septum below the cranial cavity (e.g., Squaliolus; fig.

3C, D).In this form, the preorbital muscle has an extensive origin along the entire ventral part of the septum and is inserted on the lower jaw anterior to the mandibular adductor ().Cited by: : Cladoselache shark of the Paleozoic Era Cladoselache is one of the first primitive predatory sharks that lived in the seas of North America in the Devonian Period Poster Print (14 x 14): Posters & Prints.

Cladoselache exhibited a combination of derived and ancestral characteristics. It had anatomical features similar to the current mackerel sharks of the family Lamnidae.

It had a streamlined body, from five to seven gill slits, and a short, rounded snout that had a terminal mouth opening at the front of the skull. [1] It had a very weak jaw joint compared with modern-day sharks, but it Class: Chondrichthyes.

Cladoselache is one of those prehistoric sharks that's more famous for what it didn't have than for what it did.

Specifically, this Devonian shark was almost completely devoid of scales, except on specific parts of its body, and it also lacked the "claspers" that the vast majority of sharks (both prehistoric and modern) use to impregnate females.

As you may have. It had a short, blade-like spine in front of its dorsal fin, which was not as advanced as the spike-like spines of Xenacanths, Hybodonts, and Ctenacanths.

Cladoselache was about six feet long, and was probably prey for giant placoderms such as Dunkleosteus. The lower jaw of QMF deepens rapidly posteriorly and is 84% of the height of the dorsal fin-spine of AMFB, x 3. 7, posterior dorsal fin-spine, basal plate, and neural elements of e.g.

Cladoselache and Squalus, clearly demonstrates that it is not phylogenetically significant. Like many ancient sharks, Cladoselache had a short, rounded snout, a mouth located at the front of the head (a mouth type called "terminal"), long jaws attached to the cranium under the snout and behind the eye, cladodont teeth, and a stout spine in front of each dorsal fin.

Yet it also had strong keels developed along the side of the tail. dorsal fin spine missing, but the impression of the posterior portion present to spine tip has a length of mm, with approximately spine ribs near its base (where total breadth of spine can be observed, on the left counterpart; Figure 2).

There are nine ribs present at the mid-heightof the spine on the right counterpart. There are Cladoselache was only about 1 metre ( ft) long with stiff triangular fins and slender jaws.

Its teeth had several pointed cusps, which wore down from use. From the small number of teeth found together, it is most likely that Cladoselache did not replace its teeth as regularly as modernClass: Chondrichthyes.Dorsal fins confluent, with second fins spine lost The anterior dorsal fin spine is dissociated from the dorsal fin.

Tail is, effectively diphycercal. The lower lobe appears as a second anal fin. Teeth are cladodont but forked, with the medial cusp reduced. Pectoral fin: Basals develop into an elongate metapterygial axis.
