He discovered 25-million-year-old mega-shark teeth belonging to the Great Jagged Narrow-Toothed shark, scientifically called Carcharocles angustidens.
The almost three-inch-long teeth belonged to a now-extinct ferocious shark, aptly named the great jagged narrow-toothed shark, which is a smaller cousin of the famous megalodon shark, the subject of the new movie.
Fossil enthusiast and school teacher Philip Mullaly discovered the rare pair, which are the first of their kind found in Australia and one of only three discoveries in the world. According to Newsweek, these fantastic beasts were cousins of the ferocious Megalodon, the 60-foot-long ancestor of the great while shark, and could reach staggering lengths of 30 feet (9 meters).
Erich Fitzgerald of Museums Victoria confirmed the species for Mullaly and explained just how special of a find they are.
Among the treasure trove of megashark teeth, the team also found prehistoric teeth belonging to a sixgill shark, which is a bottom-feeding scavenger that still swims off the coasts of Australia today.
Fitzgerald suspected they came from one individual shark and there might be more entombed in the rock.
"These teeth are of worldwide significance, as they represent one of just three associated groupings of Carcharocles angustidens teeth in the world, and the very first set to ever be discovered in Australia", he said.
This is because sharks, who have the ability to regrow teeth, lose up to a tooth a day and cartilage, the material a shark skeleton is made of, does not readily fossilise.
He explained that nearly all fossils of sharks worldwide were just single teeth, and it was extremely rare to find multiple associated teeth from the same shark.
Inches teeth belong to the extinct predator known as Osasuna big toothed shark. "They are still sharp, even 25 million years later". "We'll be waiting and ready for the next expedition down to salvage a giant prehistoric shark".
