Name: Squalicorax sp.
Age: Phosphate deposit, Cretaceous Period
Location Found: Oued Zem, Khouribga, Morocco
The Squalicorax Shark (also known as a Crow Shark) is a prehistoric predator that lived during the Cretaceous period, approximately 113 to 66 million years ago. They were estimated to have reached up to 7 meters (22 ft) in length. Their teeth have a curved crown and are heavily serrated, excellently designed for ripping flesh, which would have made this large shark a top predator in the ocean!
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 SEEN: The 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.
