TEETH STRUCTURE AND BIOLOGIST SCOT ANDERSON
During the filming of an episode for River Monsters, a biologist by the name of Scot Anderson was brought on as a researcher for the shark part of the show. He has been an independent wildlife researcher since 1987 and has worked for Alaska for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conducting shark tagging of salmon sharks over a three-year period in Prince William Sound. Scot was a plethora of information for us and brought the jaws of a salmon shark as a prop for the show. He was kind of enough to leave them to us for our clients to better understand their teeth structure. When you look at the teeth, it is quite obvious that these teeth are made for grasping fish and not tearing large flesh. The teeth are very similar to their cousin, the Mako shark, only smaller.
