Shark Teeth – X544-G2

These shark teeth from Morocco are super popular – this is a select lot of repaired teeth that don’t meet our usual standards. They’re perfectly imperfect – and still great little specimens as shown in the photos – they’ve just had a little bit of paleontological assistance. If you’d rather have A grade teeth, we have those too – pop over to the other listing.

Otodus obliquus is an extinct species of mackerel shark (and an ancestor of the Megalodon Shark). It lived from the Paleocene (66 million years ago) to the Miocene (5 million years ago) Epochs. Otodus obliquus teeth are distinguished from other species by their triangular crown, smooth edges, and the ‘cusps’ (little teeth) on their roots, used by the sharks to hold on to their prey securely. These teeth are sourced from Morocco, the colour matching the soil/rock in the vast phosphate mines from which they’re dug. Sharks are mostly cartilage, so teeth and vertebrae are the only fossilised remains.

This is a select lot, what you see in the photo is what you will receive. Note: repairs…
