This confusion is reflected in many nature artists' representations of the Helicoprion. It's hard to show a 250-million-year-old predator the proper respect when you have no idea why its most defining physical feature exists. Safe to say Helicoprion would be scrolling through all these drawings saying, "Nahh, delete it. Or at least don't tag me."
Let Bruce the Shark (in plush form!) remind you that fish are friends, not food.
