The Cretoxyrhina is the secondary antagonist in The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island.

Role in film

He first appeared when Littlefoot, Petrie, Cera, Ducky and Spike rode a log across the Big Water to try to get back home, he chased them, biting parts of the log off, and causing them to turn around until they hit a rock and were thrown back onto the island. At the near end of the movie he made a quick cameo appearance.


The Swimming Sharptooth resembles a generic shark or a Great White. Despite the fact that the Swimming Sharptooth is a Cretoxyrhina, he is much smaller (he is most likely a young adult). He is much larger and vicious than the modern day shark.


  • This is the only non-reptilian sharptooth to appear in the series.
  • Cretoxyrhina is one of a few Sharpteeth that aren't voiced by Frank Welker, since sharks and fish lack vocal organs.
  • The Cretoxyrhina's theme music is similar to theme of the famous fictional great white shark tale, Jaws.
