Aww, I liked Helicoprion. Oh well, it was too good to be true anyway.

What do you mean used to be? Ratfish live at the Mariana Trench, which exceeds the pressure of over 500 tons! Why are they so unappealing to you?

Hey, Helicoprion still exists, we just have a better knowledge of it anyway. And modern ratfish are not 7-meter buzzsaw jawed leviathans.

But they're still interesting. Size doesn't matter. Anacondas are still fascinating, though they're not the size of Titanoboa.
