Police issued an appeal for information about two men and a woman who were caught on CCTV lifting the animal from an open pool where visitors were allowed to reach in and stroke some species of fish.The footage shows one of the men grabbing the horn shark by its tail before wrapping it in a wet blanket and then placing it in a bucket in the child's buggy.

An amateur fossil hunter and palaeontologists have unearthed a rare set of teeth belonging to a mega -toothed shark that lived about 25 million years ago.

A rare set of teeth from a prehistoric shark that was more than twice the size of the ferocious great white shark has been unearthed on Victoria's coastline.

The chance discovery of more than 40 teeth from a Carcharocles angustidens shark that lived 25 million years ago has excited palaeontologists because it's the first time a set of the seven centimetre-long serrated chompers have been found in Australia.

While many individual teeth from this species of mega-toothed shark and its ancient relatives have been found around the world, only two other sets have previously been unearthed in New Zealand and Belgium.

A rare set of teeth from a prehistoric shark that was more than twice the size of the ferocious great white shark has been unearthed on Victoria's coastline. While many individual teeth from this species of mega -toothed shark and its ancient relatives have been found around the world, only two.

Amateur fossil finder and school teacher Philip Mullaly initially discovered about eight teeth sticking out of a boulder at Jan Juc, near Torquay, about two years ago and contacted Museums Victoria.

"They are as sharp as they were the day they were being used to slice through the flesh of whales," he told AAP.

"Think a steak knife. They're sharp."

Carcharocles angustidens grew to more than nine metres and feasted on small whales and penguins while swimming the world's oceans between 33 and 22 million years ago.

Hex Pegs secures $80,000 Shark Tank deal with Glen Richards despite Steve Baxter’s “bottom feeding” offer

  Hex Pegs secures $80,000 Shark Tank deal with Glen Richards despite Steve Baxter’s “bottom feeding” offer Glen Richards’ connections have already paid off for the business, with Hex Pegs now stocked in OzTrail stores across the country. “We’ve locked away a partnership with OzTrail for them to be our sole wholesale distributor, which is absolutely awesome. It’s opened up a lot of doors into the retail market in Australia,” he says.Sales are also on the up, says Joyce, who is hoping for an eventual overseas expansion sometime in Hex Pegs’ future.A self-diagnosed Shark Tank superfan, Joyce says he rewatched every episode to prepare for his pitch, but was still nervous as soon as he entered the tank.

The species was an ancient cousin of the infamous Megalodon, which at three times the size of the great white was the biggest and most ferocious shark to have ever lived before dying out about 2.6 million years ago.

Mr Mullaly, a school teacher from Geelong, was "blown away" when he found the first few teeth in pristine condition.

"I was in a bit of shock actually because I saw it and I thought this is looking like it's complete, like it's just fallen out of a shark's mouth even though it's 25 million years old," he said.

Suspecting they were a rare find, Mr Mullaly contacted Dr Fitzgerald, who he knew from previous discoveries of whale fossils.

Dr Fitzgerald said teeth and bits of vertebrae are usually the only parts of a shark's body that are found by fossil hunters as the creature is made up mostly of cartilage, a soft tissue that doesn't fossilise well.

"So to have fossil finds like this one from Jan Juc where there are several teeth and part of a vertebra is pretty rare," he said.

The collection of teeth will go on public display for six months at Museums Victoria, Melbourne.

"People can get a real sense of the past from seeing them," Mr Mullaly said.

"They're really beautiful objects."

Jaws: places on earth with the most shark attacks: In the International Shark Attack File's latest summary, the comprehensive database recorded a total of 155 alleged shark incidents involving humans around the globe in 2017. Of those attacks, 88 cases were confirmed unprovoked attacks, meaning no initial harassment or physical contact by a human occurred first.
