If you have a fear of great whites, or guillotines, be very grateful you didn't live in the Late Devonian period. That's when Dunkleosteus roamed the world's waters in search of prey. At 33 feet long (10 m) and weighing in at a whopping 3.6 tons, Dunkleosteus could pretty much eat anything it liked. Instead of teeth, it possessed two bony blades that it used to slice prey in half, making it the animal predecessor to the guillotine. Makes great whites look like pussy cats. Almost. But Dunkleosteus is only one of many fascinating (and terrifying) prehistoric sea creatures that we have in stock. Be sure to check out all of them!
