We decided to close for a few days for security reasons in order to avoid contacts with customers, suppliers, couriers etc. to protect us and everyone because we believe it is time to give priority to health rather than economic reasons. We feel as soon as possible when all this has passed thanks to te commitment and sacrifice of everyone.
Every order confirmed before the closing date and undispatched because awaiting payment, will be kept in suspense until the opening date of our office.
You cannot do any new purchases in this moment, because out of order. However, you can add the products you look at on your Wish List to buy them later.
Please don’t send us orders by e-mail, thank you.
 Sorry for eventually inconveniences and...everything will be fine :-)

Galeocerdo contortus (or Physogaleus contortus) is a genus of extinct tiger shark only known from fossil teeth and some vertebrae isolated.
This shark has teeth similar to modern tiger shark, but smaller, they do not have the heavy serrations, and are slender and twisted toward the crown. This indicates that probably had a diet of bony fish, similar to living sand-tiger shark.. Although it is still considered to be a type of tiger shark, because of the many minor differences in the teeth, it is moved in the genus Physogaleus.
