Name: Otodus obliquus
Specimen: Shark Tooth
Age: Phosphate deposit, Eocene
Location Found: Oued Zem, Khouribga, Morocco

These Shark Teeth are from the Otodus species of shark that patrolled the seas of Morocco around the Eocene period 56 to 33.9 million years ago. When a sharks’ teeth become worn the predator will ‘shed’ these teeth, and these will be replaced with new sharper, stronger teeth. However, unlike humans, Sharks are known for re-shedding hundreds of teeth on a regular basis, which makes them a fruitful find with fossil hunters.

ACTUAL AS SEENThe image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device. Once this specimen is sold, we will update this listing with new similar selected item, with a new photo and dimensions.
