I think we have found 1 of boomstick's favourite sharks: the rattlesnake like chainsaw shark, due to the way the bigger the chainsaw tooth like feature underneath the jaw, the older it is

C'est drôle qu'il y ait un Helicoprion sur la couverture alors que c'est un Holocéphale, mais bon, ça reste un Chondrichthyien. Je pense que je pourrai acheter ce bouquin si jamais je le trouve en magasin. :)

I can't understand French though. If the English translation is going to take a while, I better start learning now. Translators will not do the book justice. :P

Well it just seems ignorant or stupid (not saying you are, that's just how it seems).
It's like calling a Polar bear a alligator.

I get that, but still.
You can call it whatever you want, but you can't get angry when someone points out its actual name.

Excellent.

Je suis passionné par les anciens prédateurs et requins fossiles depuis des années et ai pris part à de longues discussions à propos de l'espèce souvent considérée comme "la mère de tous les prédateurs", Carcharocles megalodon. J'espère que les infos seront à la pointe.

Récemment, Helicoprion a plus été rapproché des chimères que des requins par exemple.

Les estimations de taille de C. megalodon après avoir longtemps réduites ont été revues à la hausse, approchant les 20 mètres.

Est-ce l'auteur de l'ouvrage derrière ce compte ? Etes-vous paléontologue ?

Merci et bonne continuation !

Bonjour et merci, je suis l'illustrateur de l'ouvrage et ce livre est le fruit d'années de travail avec l'auteur Gilles Cuny qui est paléontologue spécialiste des cartilagineux fossiles. Nous n'avons rien sacrifié de l'aspect scientifique et le plus à jour possible, le tout plus que richement illustré. Votre estimation de la taille de C. Megalodon est sans fondement. Il est très difficile d'en estimer la taille avec exactitude compte tenu des restes fragmentaires. On peut néanmoins sans prendre de risques évaluer une bonne quinzaine de mètres, ce qui reste juste énorme ! :)

Bonjour.

Pour sûr, je serai le premier acheteur du livre en tous cas !

Ceci n'est pas mon estimation personnelle mais celle habituellement utilisée par plusieurs auteurs.
Celle donnant des résultats autour de 15 mètres n a en ce sens pas plus de fondement que les autres, mais certaines sont désormais obsolètes (les 30 m du début XXeme siècle, les 13 m des années 70 par Randall).

Depuis 96, un certains nombres d auteurs ont publié des estimations basées sur différentes méthodologies (Gottfried et al. 15,9 m, 1996; Jeremiah, 16,4 m, 2002; Shimada, 15,5 m; 2002; Pimiento et al. 16,8 m, 2010).

Toutes ces estimations ne représentent pas la taille maximale de l'espèce mais la taille du spécimen disponible utilisé dans chaque travail respectif.

J'aime celle basée sur la largeur des dents de Jeremiah car elle ne marche pas seulement avec le requin blanc qui n'est pas tellement apparenté à C. megalodon, mais elle fonctionne aussi avec tous les lamniformes macropredateurs. Le paléontologue Mike Siversson, l'utilisant sur les plus grandes dents isolées (le spécimen du Dr Hubbell...), accrédite une taille totale de 19 mètres pour les plus grands individus.

Il y a d autres problématiques concernant la taille d un prédateur de ces proportions que j aborderai avec plaisir si vous le souhaitez dans un commentaire ultérieur.

En tout état de cause, il est improbable que le taille maximale ait été limitée à une quinzaine de mètres, même si obtenir une figure précise est impossible quand on extrapole bien au-delà des modèles de lamniformes actuels...

Intéressant =D
Il faut avouer que la bestion de la couverture (dont j'ai oublié le nom) est particulièrement emblématique de la diversité des formes que peuvent avoir eu les requins tout au long de leur longue existence =)
Reply
:icondustdevil:
dustdevil Featured By Owner May 26, 2013  Professional General Artist
Emblématique oui. C'est ce qui a fait que le choix s'est porté vers ce genre de requin singulier pour la couv alors que j'avais aussi en réserve du plus classique à la Jaws du crétacé, mais beaucoup plus commun. Mais tu verras tout ça dès que le bouquin sera dans ta biboche! ;)
