(FOX NEWS) – The remains of a small prehistoric shark that lived during the age of dinosaurs 67 million years ago have been found, to the surprise of scientists and onlookers alike, according to a new study.

Fossilized shark teeth were discovered in what is now modern-day South Dakota and were found in the same deposits as Sue the Tyrannosaurus rex, perhaps the famous T- rex specimen fossil ever unearthed.

The freshwater shark had odd triangle-shaped teeth and, due to its resemblance to the spaceships in the 1980s video game “Galaga,” it’s been dubbed Galagadon nordquistae.

“It was so tiny, you could miss it if you weren’t looking really carefully,” said retired chemist Karen Nordquist, a volunteer who discovered the fossils, in a press release. “To the naked eye, it just looks like a little bump, you have to have a microscope to get a good view of it.”
