2.6" Otodus Shark Tooth Fossil

This is a beautiful fossil of the extinct, giant mackerel shark, Otodus obliquus. It's Eocene in age, approximately 54 million years old and comes from the phosphate deposits near Khouribga, Morocco. This tooth is still embedded in the natural matrix it was found in and quite large for the teeth from this shark.

These teeth are collected during the massive phosphate mining operations. While teeth of Otodus are common fossils at the mines, ones of this size and quality are quite hard to come by.
