Fossilized Food Chain

One time I found an intact skeleton of a large python that had eaten an antelope, but died with the antelope still inside. Cool. But this is even cooler:i-0400ce8445edf1412a067add95ed468c-0_21_071126_shark_feats.jpg

A fossilized shark that swallowed a crocodile-like amphibian that, in turn, had gobbled up a fish has now been unearthed.This exceptional find marks the first time scientists have found direct evidence of such a complex, extinct food chain.

Well, maybe. The story is reported here, but I was turned onto it by this must-see post at Science Buzz.
