Scientists have named the new invented ancient shark after Gallagaga because its teeth look like a spacecraft from the 1981 arcade game.
The story behind the invention of South Dakota's shark, Galgadon Nordquisti, 67m years ago is very nice. Gallegon's small tooth was found in the rear bottom, while Paleontologists Sun Bone was found to be the world's most complete T. Rex fossils were detected. They got out of two tons of dust and met two dozen teeth of new shark species.
Gates honored the name of Galgadon, Middle School's teacher, Knott Bourne, who worked with Gates at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. The name Nordquisty comes from volunteer Karen Nordquist, who helps Gates get out of the dirt.
However, there is no word on Gallegon's ability to fire laser beams from his eyes.
