2.36" Auriculatus Fossil Shark Tooth - Morocco

This is a serrated tooth of the mega-toothed shark, Carcharocles auriculatus. It is believed Carcharocles auriculatus was closely related to the Megalodon but lived nearly 10-20 million years earlier.

This tooth was collected from the Late Eocene aged deposits of the Western Sahara Desert in Morocco. It's 2.24" and retains sharp serrations. Nearly all of these teeth have repairs as they are found fractured in the ground. There is some repair to the right root lobe and cusp.
