Falcatus falcatus (the name refers to the sickle-shaped first dorsal fin spine) is a small cladodont-toothed stethacanthid shark. It is placed in its own family Falcatidae along with, and closely related to, Damocles serratus. It ranges up to about l0-12 inches in length. It was the most abundant shark in the Bear Gulch bay. Individuals were ubiquitous, but schools of this shark have been found in the central basin, in open water. The habitat of the juveniles is unknown. It was a small, generalized predator, known to have fed on shrimp.

The large soft rostrum strongly suggests that they had an ampullary sensory system for electric detection of prey, like that of modern sharks. Large eyes suggest a strongly visual predator as well. The pectoral fin has a trailing whip for maneuverability as in all stethacanthids. The nearly symmetrical high aspect ratio tail suggests a cruiser rather than a sedentary shark. Falcatus was countershaded, darker above and lighter below; possibly similar to the sediment color (tan) - with head and spine probably colorful in males, for advertisement.

Females lack scales. Sexually mature males have denticles on the tops of their heads, and fine denticles on the dorsal rod (that is a transformed dorsal fin). Mature males also have a notably longer snout than females. Most characteristically, as in all known stethacanthids, the females do not develop either the first dorsal fin or the spine, while the males develop their distinctive structures only at maturity.


Special Scientific Significance:

The sex dimorphism, and the schooling, allows us to deduce a great amount of behavior about these fish. Note also that they had very large eyes and many sclerotic bones in the sclerotic coat of the eyes, which are unusual for a shark.

Blue Fox, THAT is why it's unfortunate that this particular species is extinct.
