Hastalis Mako, also known as Isurus Hastalis, is species of mako shark that lived during the Miocene epoch, approximately 11-5 million years ago. It was a large, fast-swimming predator that could grow up to 4 meters (13 feet) in length and had a sleek body and pointed snout with sharp teeth. Hastalis is known from fossil remains found in various locations around the world, including the United States, Europe, and South America. It is believed to have been a dominant predator in the open ocean, feeding on a variety of prey such as fish, squid, and marine mammals.
The teeth of Hastalis are similar to those of modern-day mako sharks, but they are larger and have a more robust shape. The species was originally classified as a member of the Isurus genus, but it has since been reclassified as a separate genus due to its distinct features. Overall, Hastalis is an important species for understanding the evolution and diversity of ancient sharks, as well as the ecological relationships between predators and prey in ancient marine ecos
